    I put out two nesting "buckets" for my two laying hens. I cut the tops in half, but my chickens I don't think would fit in them! So I cut away a little more lid and tried it, but their still too big I think. So I just took the lids off and they can fit in them now, but will they lay eggs? It's not REAL private, but it's a little.

    My dear a chicken will lay an egg anywhere it darned well feels like laying an egg. You will be fine.
