    Very cute! How did your chickens first react when you introduced the curtains to them? I have wondered if I should consider curtains. Thanks!

    They just poked around them at first, but then went in.. I didn't put them on at first, so they laid in the boxes without the curtains.. I put the curtain on and they went right in and laid.. I think they like the privacy...

    I too want to add curtains to my girls nest boxes.
    As Polka has asked did the hens continue to go in there fine?
