Would be a nice repurpose. :D But for most the drawers are not tall enough....then, there's all the "stuff" to get in the slider area to plug it up.


I love the idea tho :clap

I agree...not tall enough, but maybe combining two drawers to make them both deep enough for bedding and the hen? Then the bedding should stay in the drawers instead of the in the drawer tracks, though one would no doubt have to clean those out on occasion anyway.

You know what would be really neat? If a person could incorporate the dresser idea wherein they cut holes in the back of the dresser for the hen's entrances, but place the dresser into the wall of the coop in such a manner than one needs only pull out a drawer to gather eggs from the outside of the coop.
That would be really neat!
