    Hi all!!! We're just getting ready to put in our nest boxes for our young ladies, and were planning on using some plastic milk crates that we have. I was wondering if anyone has any experience using the Kuhl plastic nest pads? We got some of them, but they feel kind of sharp and I can't imagine a hen wanting to stand on that to lay an egg! Are they supposed to stand on it or are they meant for a different kind of nest box, like where the hen perches above it or something?

    Any advice would be great!

    I've never even heard of them!

    When I had chickens, they were happy laying eggs in a nest made of nice, soft hay or wood shavings.
