    DH asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I told him nest boxes. He said he would make them but not for Christmas. I can have them now. I guess he loves me, or maybe he loves the chickens. This is how far he got in one afternoon.

    Quote:That is definitely a possibility, at least for the outside. I may make it a bit darker in the boxes. Just in case the girls want to feel that they are hidden away more in them.

    Maybe yellow would make them think about eggs and lay more?!? I still think pink would be cute since only the girls use them...
    I had completely white ones and it didn't seem to bother then hens, so i wouldn't be too worried about making it gaudy:)
    I haven't painted the ones i have now...probably should though...i just take them down and power wash them occasionally.
