I have got to change my rookie set up it is just too stupid. I live in Fl and it can get over 100* in the summer and mid 60tys in the winter and is pretty much always humid. I have a small hen house 4x4x4 it is well ventilated but my chicken only go in it a night. I just purchased a 6 foot high 10x6 chain link dog run. MY question is because of the heat, most of the time, can I leave the nesting boxes outside in the run. My husband built this hug structure with 6 nesting boxes. I have 8 hens, no rooster and it is built, I don't want to tell him I hate it. I think the girls a laying in the shrubs but I don't know. I'm just putting this out there because I don't know what to do and I am the only one I know that has chickens.
