    would 1.5 by 1.5 ft be a good size nest box for my production toulouse? and do geese need nest boxes on the ground and do they even lay in a nest box?

    Quote:Sounds minimum to me, mone like the 2 by 2. By all means on the ground if you expect them to hatch , dirt floor is best it helps to hold moistue. mine did but it took them a while to get the idea of what they were for.

    Mine is happy with an old covered plastic dog house. The dogs don't use it.
