I am drawing up my plans for the wall that will have the external nest boxes mounted into it. I have space for two nest boxes (for 4 hens). For what I am planning, each box would be 15 ½” wide X 12” deep (or as deep as I want to make it). Is this width OK or is it too wide for them to feel secure?
It will be just fine. When you gotta lay an egg, you gotta lay an egg. When the time comes, the hens won't care.

Here is my main nesting box:
