Put oil on a very thick piece of paper, or something, so you can remove it if it doesn't go over ...instead of saturating a permanent part of the nest box or coop.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

I put a little tea tree and eucalyptus on a bit of hay and attached it to the underside of the hatch (don't know if that makes sense!!). Now I get to wait...
