Well i finally got around to putting up some decent fence and a run up to their window/door to the yard. My next dilemma is nesting boxes... Any Low cost ideas for New Hampshires and what seems to be an Easter Egger? They are 6 weeks today, 24 total (20 hens, 4 Roo's we think) My question or thoughts are on nesting boxes. Maybe 5 gallon buckets? Are they too small? How many, we were thinking 4-5 total nesting boxes. FYI, i am going to put up some roosts with trees we fell on the land. Wide ladder style is the thought. (pics will follow when we get to it, probably in the new year???) Thanks for the thoughts and ideas!
