Can anyone send pictures of nesting boxes you have for your silkies or tell me what you have.I have three silkies one is a rooster and the other two are hens.We just got them and they need something to nest in at night,I know they don`t roost so would the box have to be at grond level?My dh was going to build one that would house all three and I said that is not a good idea because the hens will go broody and that would not work.What is the size of a silkie box?Thanks for any info you can share with me.

Do you lay them on there side?Do you nail them to something so they don`t move?
