I have 9 nests in my main layers coop. Even though they mostly like to use 3 of those and there are plenty of empties, my only bantam, Shadow, is 30 weeks old, extra small, and hasn't started laying yet. She get chased away from everything and on occasion, run over, poor little girl, though she does pretty well most of the time. I think the nests I have dont feel cozy enough for her. My DH wants to make her a small nest that no one else can really fit into so she can have a special place to go. It can hang on a wall near her special roost we installed for her, but not sure what to do so that none of the bigger birds will be able to invade her space. Ive looked through many posts but they all seem too large. She only needs one nest, just one little, bitty haven in which to escape to lay her little eggs.
