I am adopting 12 cochins nest week and we are unemployed. I had this Rubbermaid covered trash can box that had been sitting out for a while. We used a tie down strap to prevent warping and drilled out a door and a window that will be covered in mesh. Up higher will be additional vent holes. We'll probably use a cookie sheet to cover the door at night and a ramp in the day with a lock on top. There will be roosts in there. My question is...these hens are laying. Where can I put the nesting boxes? Can I scrub them down and put them in the screened enclosure? Will the leave the nesting boxes to go into the coop at night? Or should I forgo nesting boxes? Ideas about insulation? I'm in CT.
