Hey Simon, very swanky!!!

It's really good to see what everyone is up to here - in the way of livestock housing and so on.

That's pretty nifty Dave. I see that the barbie is well handy for when you get the prospective chicks fattened

Nice work though. Just one question ... why do the two top horizontals extend beyond the rest? I am sure there is a good reason for this (or could you not be bothered to chop 'em off?)

It's so you can easily move the house round the garden. I made the slight mistake of making mine too heavy, but at least it stays put in the wind.
