    My peeps are only 5 weeks old but I am looking ahead:lol: Wen I was at Lowes the other day, getting chain to hang a feeder, I saw the 'chain bucket', about 10" square and deep with a lid open half way. They just throw/give them away when empty. 5 of my peeps are bantams. is this too small for a nesting box?

    If it is clean and wont roll around it would be ideal.
