    I'm planning to build new coop as soon as our snow is gone. I have my plan written down as to coop a run size. My question is roughly what size do I need to build the nest boxes? Thanks

    Bantam Breed, Large Fowl, or Jersey Giants?

    The nest boxes in my coops are about 12''X12''. Here's a picture:

    Hope this helps.

    Edit: If you have a large breed such as buckeyes, brahmas, or jersey giants, you might want to make them a little bigger
