I am looking to put in different nesting boxes. I kept the original one I made because my BO was my only layer and she would sleep on top of the nesting boxes (she gone now). Which look like this... I want the nesting boxes that stick out of the barn with a lid that opens and it will give my girls more room inside the coop. Its gets kind of cold here but there is more wind than anything that blowes from back to front of the coop. I have a window in the back that I can keep closed but, I find they stay inside the coop more and more. I am good with a hammer but better with a spatchula . Everything inside the coop I did myself. My husband put the window in and cut my doors for me (to keep the wild dogs from getting my chickens again) but everything else I did. The new boxes I will do myself. Any ideas of how to make them. I have ideas but they look so much better in my head than they do when I get done. With the wind that leads me to insulation. I need a cheep fix for that. Money is tight. I'm going to buy some plywood to make the nesting box and there wont be much left after that. I have heard some people say they use cardboard boxes lining the walls. Any insight on this????
