Sorry for the double post, still learning how this all works.
12" x 12" is standard dimensions for nest boxes. Try doing a search as there are alot of neat ideas submitted my members.
Hope this helps!
12 x 12 is too small for my RIRs and BOs. They can't turn around very easily in it. I think it would be find for slightly smaller birds. My boxes are 14 x 14.
Here's a link with alternative ideas for nests. I agree that it depends on the size of the hen(s).
thank you so much for the advice

Still typing with only my left hand an it has a bad habit of getting ahead of my brain...
Mine are like 11(wide)x12. my girls seem to like them just fine.
I will have to give my support for 12x12x12 nesting box.
We have many nesting boxes that i/ many older people have made and or used.
All hens even the biggest girls love the nest.
It may not be the size but the location,
just a suggestion.
