  • I started with getting a nesting box and a ratproof chicken feeder to start. I have not seen any mice or rats and the chickens are doing what they are suppose to do. I got my feeder and nest box out of Oklahoma from 'thecarpentershop.net' Very well built and light to move when I want to.

    • Introduction
    • Store-bought eggs pale in comparison to home-grown eggs
    • Chickens need nesting boxes to lay eggs
    • You can buy, build, or improvise
    www.MySnazzyChickenCoop.com
    • 1. Number
    • 3-4 hens can share one nesting box
    • Hens lay on individual schedules
    www.MySnazzyChickenCoop.com
    • 2. Size
    • Allow 1-2 extra space around the inside of the nesting box when the hen sits inside
    • 12 inches square, 18 inches deep
    • Too much space encourages hens to spend too much time in the box
    www.MySnazzyChickenCoop.com
    • 3. Configuration
    • The top of the box should have a steeply slanted roof
    • Create a front entrance for the hen and a rear access for egg gathering
    • Boxes should have a lip and a roost
    www.MySnazzyChickenCoop.com
    • 4. Location
    • Nesting boxes should be semi-private
    • Hang above the floor of the coop but no higher than roosting rods
    • Elevation makes it easy to gather eggs, but don’t encourage chickens to sleep there
    www.MySnazzyChickenCoop.com
    • 5. Bad Habits
    • Chickens should not poop in their nesting boxes, peck at their eggs, or lay eggs outside of the nesting boxes
    • Bad habits are signs that your chickens do not like their boxes
    www.MySnazzyChickenCoop.com
    • Conclusion
    • 3-4 hens per nesting box
    • Nesting boxes should be 1 square foot, not too big, and located slightly above the coop floor
    • A desirable nesting box is essential for good egg-laying habits
