The nest box has been the bane of my existence... until now. I am a very OCD person. The constant battle of nesting box bedding being on the coop floor is driving me insane. In addition to them kicking it out when the situate their nest, I have several birds who stand outside the box and pull out the contents. My solution: I made a frame sort of like a free-standing perch. It's wide enough for them to hop onto it, but skinny enough that they won't want to sleep on it. I secured it 4" from the nest box openings. This should stop the ladies from reaching in and pulling stuff out. Their necks are not quite long enough to reach from the floor of the coop. Next I created a "hammock" from the new perch to under the kick board of the nest box from an old vinyl tablecloth. Now when the girls kick out bedding it will collect in the hammock. I can scoop it out from the access door and if it's clean, I can put it back in the box. When the paint is dry and it's in place I'll post a picture. Hopefully this will help all the other OCD chicken keepers out there.
