    Hi, how many nesting boxes do you need for 4 chicks? Do they share, or not? Thanks

    1 is enough but give them two because when you get more chicks you'll have them already [​IMG]

    P.S. they will only use one even if you give them 4, dont know why but one box seems to be THE box that they all must have, I have found 7 eggs all in the same box and Mine have 8 boxes to choose from

    Yeah, even if you have like 20 birds... they will all fight for the best spot... in the box that is hardest to get to. [​IMG]
