Covered Litter boxes for Nesting boxes?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I searched the archives for nesting boxes and noticed that someone mentioned that people sometimes use covered litter boxes for nesting boxes.  This is so ingenious!  Easy to clean, I can add more if needed, I can take them completely out of the coop to super-clean everything!  Is this too good to be true?  My chicks are 5 weeks old and I have 2 bantam cochins, 2 sultans and 2 wyandottes....the litter boxes should be big enough, right?  I was thinking of getting 3 boxes

Yes, Yes, Yes I Do!  I have chickens, how 'bout you?!

Standard size litter boxes are plenty big for any chicken to lay in.
