    any suggestions for cheap nesting boxes? I have heavy breeds.. BO, RIR, SLW, BR WO & Australorps. I was wanting to use those plastic egg crates for their nesting boxes, they sell cheap at the dollar general store, do you think these will be large enough?[​IMG]

    They should be fine even for large breeds. Quick and easy, just put something on the front to keep eggs from rolling out.
