Hi there, My chickens have been in their coop for about a week. It's a fairly small coop, with a huge run and they free range all day as well. The actual coop is only 3x4 ish, with an "addition" of a nesting box with a flip up hatch to collect eggs. The nesting box is basically one large area, with a piece of wood about 4 inches high as a divider. Right now when I go out to see them, they are typically huddling together in the nesting box, 1 may be roosting right on the edge of the coop & nesting box, and the others are just hanging in the box. 1). Is it good for them to be treating the nesting box as part of the coop? I would think it might be better to keep them out of there until it's time for them to use it for laying (which should start in early to mid October). Or is it okay that they use it? 2). Should I add something more private in the nesting box? Something that maybe divides the nesting box into two separate boxes higher than the 4 inch high divider? I was thinking of getting those solid/fabric looking bins from Target that are often used as storage for toys. I guess I'm not sure if chickens like privacy in the forms of tall sided nesting boxes or if that's not a huge deal. http://www.target.com/p/closetmaid-...4368593#prodSlot=medium_1_4&term=storage+bins Thanks for any insights.
