    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. For RIRs, which are a dual-pupose breed, I would make the nest boxes at least 14" X 14". Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    Thank you for your answers ! All of you have been very helpful. The bucket feeders and water feeders are great ideas for my girls (which I don't even have yet)! My hubby is building my coop and getting it ready for the girls come this spring!
