I need help with hen houses.urgent

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i am new to the chicken community. I am trying to build a coop but cnat fugure out if i should do individual boxes, one big box, or does it matter. If i do one big box i would have 2 boxes that are 42x12x12 and one that is 31x12x12. If you have any other ideas then i am up for suggestions.

People do different things but I have one l shaped laying box. A lot of times they all use the same nest. In my opinion it's really whatever you want.

I agree - don't sweat it - regardless of what you do, your chickens will have other ideas. I have three nest boxes, but all my laying hens fight over 1 of them - total madness (to a human at least) but thats chickens for you!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
