Does anyone have experience using 5 gallon buckets for nesting boxes? Pros/cons? Ran across this idea and thought in may work well for me and my girls. I have the opportunity to re-design a cattle trough gone chicken coop. Looking for ease of cleaning and cost effectiveness. A problem I have in their current coop is their ply wood nesting boxes are too short and their tail feathers get frayed and bent on the tips. My backyard mix hens are all smaller than a Buff Orp. if that helps with size needed for nesting areas.
