We have got the coop done !! .....all but the paint....and it is way too cold to do that !! .....so today , I was installing the nesting boxes. We made 7 of them. They are 12x14x12 .....I went a little crazy the other day at the feed store, as I was looking at the Cackle Hatchery catalog to place my order. They have actual big color photographs of all of the hens and roosters they offer. This makes it incredidibly hard to decide on a 'limited' number of birds!! They all look soooo gorgeous!!! Soooo , I sorta kinda went a little over my limit of 12 hens and 2 roosters.....and wound up with 5 each of 5 different kinds .....mostly the large egg layers. My question is , are 25 large birds gonna be too crowded with only 7 nesting boxes? I want them all to be good layers. Should I go out in the morning and build another row of them to stack on top??? If so , then I am gonna have to set my alarm clock alittle earlier in the morning!! I dont get my birds till April 2nd, but I have a free day tomorrow!! Thanks in advance!!!
