Some questions about redesigning my coop.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

As mentioned in another thread, I am planning on doing some upgrading to my coop and run.  I want to remove the old nest boxes and replace them with new ones.  Is there anything I need to do to ensure the girls won't be too confused about the change and know what the new boxes are for?  I have a few ideas for plans, but just want to make sure the girls transition to the new boxes OK. These are my current boxes:

 

 

I am trying to make more floor space for when I introduce the new chicks later this year.  So here is the design I want to go with.

 

 

Basically, if I make this change, will the girls know that these are there for them to lay in?
