In the Brooder

I got chickens as a gift and I am raising them "on a shoestring" are these nesting boxes good enough or is it a FAIL? Opinions? Options?
I actually have my chickens every which way this year.....
anyway, the result is that they don't actually have any standard nest boxes at all.
I have one clear small rectangle tote (about the size of a cat litter box) screwed about 2 feet up on one wall, and that is it.
So, my ladies have been laying in that open topped clear box, and on the back edge of their poop tray.
I am happy, too happy to bother building nest boxes.
My poop tray is full of PDZ, so the eggs are always spotlessly clean.
Point being....who cares? As long as your hens lay someplace you can find the eggs, where the eggs stay clean, great.
