We just got our coop yesterday. When we looked at it, I told the guy who sold it to us that I thought the nesting boxes were too small. He assured me that he had chickens in the exact same coop - and they use the boxes every day. So we brought it home (two hour drive). This morning I measured the boxes - and they are 8 1/2 " x 9 ". Isn't that too small? I will have Araucanas, New Hampshire Reds and Welsummers. Thanks!
