    My DH sent me this picture of some nest boxes at the local farm store. The materials are flimsy, and they cost way too much, but what do you think of the design? He says they are about 12"x12"x12" deep. Not going to buy them (maybe copy the design depending on what you all say), but I need to get another nest or two before my 5 new girls start laying (I have 3 for my 7 chickens, and they use all three of them.
