I made a wooden box condo 5 across that were each 12" wide, 12" high, 14" deep thinking my larger birds would be comfy. It turned out to be to big, 2 birds would crowd in and break an egg.or another would try to get the egg one was sitting on. Another thing is they scratch to make a nest and expose the hard wood base and lay their egg and it would crack. Before you know it you got chickens going nest to nest looking to eat broken eggs and even breaking them too. Make them small and a rounded base so the egg is craddled in soft nest material and an opening smaller than the inside dimensions.
