    My chicks aren't old enough to lay eggs yet, but here's my nesting set-up. (It was an old antique nest box that my mom gave me. She'd been using it as decoration, but I'm using it as a nesting box condo.)

    I use an old compost tumbler barrel for a community nest. I took the door off and stood it on end and put about a foot of bedding in there. It's outside of the coop in a secluded corner of the run. It looks tacky but saves space in the coop and the hens love it! I'll try to get a pic of it in the morning.
