Alright, I am planning a rebuild of my coop's nests. This is what I've got thus far. The boxes are in groups of two and off set so that the hens can do a zig-zag hop from one to the next all the way to the top if they want. Approximately 18 inches from the floor so that it isn't taking up any floor space and is hopefully tall enough to discourage nesting beneath it. The wall is 6 feet tall and the highest box will be about 4 1/2 feet high, which I'm not sure I like. I would do two rows of four, but then I haven't figured out how to make the second level accessible without having the lower level stick way out for them to jump from. Please tell me what is wrong with this setup and how I can improve it. This will be our fourth nest box arrangement and I'd really like it to be our last rebuild. ETA: Okay, the more I look at this plan, the less I like it. :/ Anyone have a good plan for 8 nesting boxes to fit in a 4-foot wide apace?
