    first let me say that I am a LONG time LURKER but I am so proud of the nesting boxes my hubby made that I just HAD to actually join you all and share [​IMG] This forum has been INVALUABLE in starting up my little coop. Something that I've wanted to do for years and finally (after spending countless hours on BYC) I decided this was the year to do it.

    We started with baby chicks this past spring, raised them up, built them their coop, "Coop DeVille", and they are thriving [​IMG]

    Here are my boxes...

    8 spots, bottom hinged for easy cleaning, top hinged for egg gathering [​IMG] mounted about twenty inches off the ground in our 12x12 coop for our 9 ladies and one rooster.
