    How many nesting boxes do I need ??? [​IMG]

    Do I need one nesting box per hen ? Or do they "share" ... or what ? [​IMG]

    Still working on figuring out how we need to do our chicken coop. Getting tons of ideas, and figures. So please, any help would be appreciated [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The usual formula is one nest box per 4 hens, but my 13 girls all fight for the same nest box! *LOL* If you have extras they'll probably just roost in them.
