What are the minimum requirements for a comfy nest box? I have seen that many are very simple, but some are designed according to specifications. I was not on the premises when my coop was built by my dear brother, and so my boxes are not what I would have liked. They are at the same level as the coop floor; he added a door on the outside to collect eggs w/o entering the coop, so changing the design is tricky. The boxes just seem very open to me (as a person) and I have read that the girls prefer a more solitary space; would it help to put another box/pan inside the nest space that is now available? My fingers are crossed that my eldest hen (Austrolorpe) will begin to lay in the next couple of weeks and want to make her space ready and inviting. HELP !
