    My DH converted some old kitchen cabinets into next boxes.....there's been little use, maybe a couple of eggs a day, the rest are lain in an old horse feeder. [​IMG]

    I'm wondering if the boxes aren't deep enough. I think they're about 12" to 15" deep.

    Also, how much of a "lip" should be in front, to hold shavings and eggs in?

    Thanks!
