    My sweet hubby is outside as I type making my babies a nice home. We went to the local feed store and checked out the premade nesting boxes and they were 10x10x10... does that sound right? Is 10 inches enough for them to nest comfortably? My mom seems to think its to small so I thought I would ask you guys... any help would be appreciated!~

    I think so. We used nessting boxes from an old chicken house, and they are 9x9x9 so 10x10x10 should be plenty of room

    I thought that was too small also, so I made mine 13x14 for my big ladies. I have seen all 3 of them get in there at once. So 10x10 would be plenty.....
