Rats! I built a really nice built-in "cabinet" set of six nest boxes with two rows of three that have two hinged panels on the back for easy egg removal. the top row is probably three feet off the floor. Problem as I see it, I have bought some Orpington pullets, and I seem to recall the orps at the county fair were right big chickens. My boxes are 12x12x12 inside measurement. I don't think the hens will be able to fit their behinds in there. Can anyone give me some advice on this please:/. Do I need to build larger boxes all on the same level and remove the built-in unit? My pullets will be here in about two weeks. Here are some pics of my 8x12 henhouse, and the nest boxes front and back. I also included pics of my waterer which adds a bit of whimsy (I just learnt that word today) to the coop. What do you think?
