    Ya'll are all so nice! Thank you for your compliments. I am real excited about how it turned out. But, for some reason all the girls lay in one nesting box. It is the one closest to the roost, so I guess it's easier for them to get in. I lowered them a little from their original height and added an old towel bar to the front, thinking it would encourage use of the other boxes. It's not really a problem I guess, unless they start fighting for use time and breaking eggs! I may end up taking out the whole row of nesting boxes and just putting 1 in. That would really give them a lot more space during the winter.
