    I am very new at 'chickening'..........hence, here's my question.....would it be ok to use fresh cut alfalfa in the nest boxes? And what other nesting materials do you use in your nest boxes?? Thanks for your imput!!! ~Beulah

  2. Grass hay, straw, alfalfa, wood shavings - these all would work.
