I want an "entry way" into my 8X12 hen house. The main door is in the middle of the end (8ft) and I intend to wall/wire off a little square about 4X6 -- restricted access, no chickens allowed. I'm doing this for a number of reasons. Keep the feed and chicken supplies from getting poopy, etc. I plan to put a wire door to gain access to the chickens, but I'm thinking of building my nesters (about 6) so the backs of the nestors are accessible (egg collection) from entry way. This will keep us out of the coop itself for egg collection and keep us out of the weather when it's 13 below and blizzardy (happens alot, here). I also want to rig a rope pull so I can open the chicken door w/o going in. I like the chickens -- really -- I just want the option. So here's the question -- apart from the general advice about what you put in closets/entries, my design will leave a little corner section of the coop about 2x4. Is that too small a section to place my nesters? That is, by the time I put up the nestors, the birds would have about a 1 foot "isle" to get access to the nestors. Is this going to cramp their style? I know they like darker for laying and this would be the darkest corner, but I want to know if this will be enough room for them to "get in." Hope this is clear.
