is an 8x8 opening big enough? boxes will be larger 12x12 or so
Should work just fine. One of my silkies likes laying in a 12 inch round basket.
Quote:my full size birds (and silkies) fit thru an opening about that size for laying in the nest box...
Just make sure they are low to the ground. I have my nest boxes sitting on the ground and I've never seen a silkie on the top row. They will, however, pile in three at a time. I don't think they mind how small it is!
