I'll be moving my chickens into their new coop this coming week. I have 7 chickens. I have 2 nesting boxes in their new coop. Should I block their nesting boxes at first? My biggest girls are only about 9 weeks old, the next ones are 5 weeks and the baby is about 3 weeks old. Is it a problem to have an open nesting box for them? Or should I just see what happens. I know that we are no where near ready for eggs, but I never thought about blocking the nesting box until I started seeing some people say that they did. My big girls do roost at night, and my little ones all have a little shelf that the sleep on right now. I will have both a shelf and a roost in the new coop.
