Hey guys, new to the forum, ive been posting a few times in the michigan thread
Wondering from all of you, what height should i have my nesting boxes at?
I heard that some people have them up about shoulder height and the chickens just fly up there no problem
others ive heard have them down low
Wondering if it makes any difference for the chickens?
I have mine about chest/shoulder height
My 15 week old buffs dont go in them yet, but its early for them.
I did "foster' some year old laying hens for about a week.....they flew up there no problem and laid eggs
Just curious if chickens prefer it up high or closer down low.......again mine are chest/shoulder high (nice because i dont have to bend down to clean/get eggs and i hang the feeder/water from below)
let me know....im hopefully a few weeks away from my first eggs....want to make sure its right
