Ok. So, here we are on the 2nd day of construction. Thankfully my dad was able to get some work in before the rain came! We are plugging along, slowly but surely - and arguing every step of the way. I want siding, he wanted to paint the plywood. I want windows that open, he wants to put fixed windows. Haha. I think I will win all the fights, not sure why he is even arguing with me - but, it keeps him young Now, is where I need your help. Please. The egg retrieval hatch. (not sure what it is called. I knew once, but am drawing a blank must be all the arguing Anywho. My coop is 8x7. I will have 6 bantams, a jersey giant, buff orp, dominique, barred rock, white plymouth rock, black sumatra & RIR. How many nesting boxes will I need? How big should the boxes be? and the access hatch for eggs? If anyone could please help, I would appreciate it. I was going to do 6 nesting boxes (incase we increase our flock - my town allows 20) But, need help with dimensions, please. Thanks so much! I am feeling frustrated.
