So far the biggest challenge with my new coop is finding a nesting arrangement that allows more than one girl to lay at a time. What? Just add more nests, right? Wrong. They all want to use the same nest in or about the same time, as it seems. I wasn't thinking the other day or I would have taken a picture of girls stacked up on top of one another in the same box with eggs rolling over into the ajoining nest. It was a corner nest. Yes, a sight to see to say the least. I am on about the fourth nesting arrangement, moving the boxes around in the coop and have finally (I think) have found something that works. I ended up placing the nest boxes high in the coop to only allow access from the front. My nest boxes are 12x12x12 with nothing on the top, so nothing really big enough for front entrance only. My coop is slanted so the back is still only about eye level so It still allows for easy nest raids. Another comment to pass along. I have read on here that litter is better bedding than hay, yep, probally right but my girls stop laying until I brought the hay back. Guess they can kick it out or eat it if they want. Guess we see who rules the roost here.
