Hi has any one bought the ready made nest box that open from the back not the top? Building a coop by my lonesome and thought these would be great (less work) but worried about the size I have 3 heavy breed girls out of my 5 and the 11 3/4 width is it a worry for them? I like the way it open so the snow doesn't fall in. What do you all think, here is the link.
The product says it is 20 or so inches high. I think they are talking about the exterior of the nest? I would personally ask them about the interior dimensions.
Additionally it says that each accommodates 8 hens? If they mean that each nest is good for 4 hens and there are two nests so that equals eight hens then i understand. If they are meaning that each nest will handle eight layers I doubt it.
It may be a great product, I would just ask questions.
