I plan on doing a full report from beginning to end on my new coop but in the meantime, I only have to add the pine chips/shavings to the coop floor but I'm concerned about space for my nesting box. The actual height entering it is 10.5 inches x 28" across. I don't want to take up anymore space trying to fit a plastic box or container in there for the hen to lay her eggs. I've got linolium layed down already, should I just put some shavings down in there & let them make the best of it? Or is there a better alternative? BTW, I'm a newbie to this hobby & have spent the last 4 weeks building my 1st coop & run. I will be bringing 2-3 hens home later this week & will post up my story. Thanks. b.
