Cheap Way to Raise Chickens: Installing the Nesting Boxes

My wonderful hubby Michael was able to get two more buckets at work today to use as nesting boxes. Once we cut the lids, he went to work installing them in the coop.
The first one up.  
Screws on the inside.
All four of them up. Now we just need to put something up in front of them for the chickens to stand on. We will go with something low cost. Probably a tree limb because it is FREE.
I don't know what I would do without Michael. He is such a wonderful husband. Even if he doesn't want chickens, he is still so willing to help me get ready for them. *swoon*

Our lab Peaches was laying in the drive way watching as we worked.
Doesn't she look ferocious?

Sorry about the dark pictures. It was getting very late.
