post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was wanting to know what works the best for nesting boxes for bantams? I know they dont have to be the size of big chicken boxes.   thanks Jerry

My bantams use the same nesting box as do the larger chickens.

I don't use boxes....I use flat sided buckets hanging on the wall for all of my chickens. I love that I can unsnap them and scrub them out. And if I have a broody, and decide to let her set, then I can just unsnap the bucket and move the entire thing to a safe pen for momma and futire chicks. Last time I moved everything at night while momma hen was still sittin on the nest.
