Okay Tim the wood was broken but I was able to nail it for a quick fix. but it should work for my chicken to lay eggs.

i used this hutch as a step up from a brooder for my two chicks. we had to keep it inside, as it was to cold yet for the birds; for this the hutch served us perfectly. as the chicks grew to pullets, the hutch became crowded (they weren't full pullets, really). the true issue is where to keep the feeder and waterer. with the perch going across the entire length of the hutch, you have to put the water and feed each on one side, in front of the perch, which leaves little standing room for the birds. the pull-out metal sheet is great, pretty easy to clean, though it does pick up water stains. but really who cares? i imagine this hutch would be great for a brooding hen or a hen with chicks, and i plan to use it for such in the future. would be good for a sick hen as well. the cage itself is a little difficult to clean--you really must scrub the[...] ;) assembly of the unit was moderately simple. pay attention to directions and it shouldn't take long. our roof came sticky, with most of the weather proof material missing. instead of sending back, we put shingles on it. all in all, a good piece.
great for the suburban farmer

6 year old received 6 eggs at Easter, and hatched all 6. Nice "next step" after the brooder box. Picked up 3 brooder lights[...] kept box warm. I did fabricate a front flap from a piece of lightweight carpet to keep the heat in at night, which worked well.
