Well we moved over a month ago... Into a house that cane with this huge aviary what looked like nesting boxes and a hutch. We were wondering what to do with it when the letting absenteeism informed us they had to downsize their chickens and 5 hens were in fast need of new house! So with a lot of help from them. A little DIY, we kitted out the aviary for them. They seem to like it do far, I want to put some more perches in for then. It was very fast as they had no takers and they told us either we had them or it was the rainbow bridge. Which for us, isn't really a question. All of the bedding that I spent ages nicely setting up in the nesting boxes has been utterly kicked out... Any advice? We think we should put a plank of wood over the box at the bottom to create a lip so they can't just shove everything out of the boxes? I know it will be waiting till spring before eggs anyway.. But I'm not sure what on earth to do if they decide the nesting boxes must be free from hay. Any advice is good, I'm scouring the websites and reading what I can and I've been doing it every day for a few weeks now. I just find it's better to talk to people occasionally hence why I joined I didn't want to bother then too much. As yesterday they just got uprooted from home and popped somewhere new so I thought I'd live then a little bit of time to acclimatise.
