Birds don't have any issues getting to the top?  I'm buying what was a wooden parts shelf so it's actually got 3 or 4 rows.  I was just going to cut it down to whatever I decided to do

One potential problem with high nests is that they may roost(sleep) in them and poop them up.

Roosts are best located higher than nests to avoid that problem.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

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'd drop that nest bank down as close to the floor as possible.....or they'll be roosting(sleeping) in the nests.

How many birds do you have? You only need 1 nest for every 3-5 birds.

currently have 9 chickens and 6 ducks.  I was going to eliminate the top row of boxes and have the roost by the opposite exterior wall which has a window.
