    2x2 is actually 1.5 so chicken could probably wrap it's feet around it. Don't think 3x3 would work very well though. We also use 2x4s and just round the corners a little so they are not sharp.

    Don't know about nesting box being on floor, but when we have one hen isolated from the others, she does lay her eggs in a pet carrier that we have sitting on the ground.

    2x2s work well for roosts. I have my nest boxes one the floor. Works fine for me. Also they don't try and roost in the nest boxes, filling them with poo.
