I'm so excited but I have a couple of questions. My last hens decided to make their nests on the ground in the woods. So I would just place a hardware cloth cage over them to keep them safe. My current hen has decided she wants to nest in the chicken coop, which is great, and is definitely less work for me. The thing is, she's chosen to make her nest on a shelf in the coop that's about 6 ft off the ground on a hay bale my chickens like to lay on. I would really like to leave her nest there so she doesn't move it outside. Will the babies be able to get down? Or will I have to watch like a hawk after they've hatched and help them to the floor? I made her a good sized nest box that's on the coop floor, but she's shown zero interest in it. Any advice you all could offer would be fantastic!
