I've got a few ideas in my head, but I'm not sure which will be the easiest to build and best for the birds. I'm hoping for some ideas and/or advice please! Here is what we are going to use for our nesting boxes. We are going to turn it on it's side, and add shelves across the middle of each space for a total of 6 boxes (we have 14 chickens). I will add a lip on each level to keep bedding and eggs in. I think this is about 3'x5', not at home to measure now. Here are 3 ideas I've come up with for roosts. Please forgive my hasty paint drawings! 1- Ladder in front of and above the nesting boxes with 2 roosts and several smaller rungs to hop up (side view, the only way I could draw this and have it make sense). 2- 2 roosts above the dropping board/nest box with a ladder up the side of the nest box 3- One long roost that runs the length of the wall (10'), but only about half the roost would be above the dropping board. A ladder up one side since this would be 4-5' off the ground. I'm torn, since I like and dislike parts of each of these designs. Any ideas or advice, or pics of your similar setup would be greatly appreciated!
