Hello I built a chicken coop, but I do not know what exactly to put inside the nesting section so they can feel comfortable while laying eggs, can I get some feed back as to what the best choice would be ??? Thank you!

I just use pine shavings, but you can also use straw. It doesn't make a significant difference. Whatever pleases your eye.

This will only be useful to you if your feed comes in a nylon mesh feed bag unfortunately.

Nest boxes

In my nest boxes I fold a feed bag to fit (nest boxes are 1 ft³ and the bag runs up the sides and the back a few inches). When a bag gets soiled; fold a new one; pop out the soiled; pop in the new.

 

Feed bags are a nylon mesh bag.

Frozen poop just peels off in below freezing temperatures and just flakes off in summer when left out in the sun to bake and dry.

 

I have 65 trips around the sun it is the best method I have stumbled upon.

 

Make sure the twine is removed from the open end of the bag it can get tangled around your birds.

 

Hope this helps,

We use the pine shavings in their coop.  So to make the two areas (coop and nesting boxes) feel like different spaces we put straw in the nesting boxes.  They have worked it into beautiful nests, so I think they like it.  They will use whatever you provide them with though, so don't stress over it.  :yiipchick
