Okay guys I know this topic has been up before but I"m in the middle of building nest boxes for about 45 hens. They are all about 18 weeks old and getting ready. My husband and I are going to bulid this week end. We are thinking 12x14 for the boxes and about 22 boxes. My question is : Will this be enough and are they going to be big enough. I have a mix flock and I beleive the best breed I have Orpington both white and buff. What do you guy think. Thanks for all the ideas in advance.
