The length of legs may be varied to suit the breed of hens.

Braces for the legs near the bottom have purposely been omitted so that the" space under the stand may be used for scratching and also to facilitate the use of tools under and around the stand.

Strips of wood may be nailed to the outside of the end members of the stand to prevent the trough from sliding lengthwise and off the platform.

It may be noted that the trough is no*, nailed to the platform but only set into the notches in the end pieces of the frame. This permits the removal of the trough for cleaning and filling.
