I have nest boxes hung on the wall but I also have a basket that sits on the floor in the corner. You could also use 5 gallon buckets, milk crates or a cardboard box. I think the linoleum with shavings will be fine. Just remember: lots and lots of ventilation.What are the various types of nest boxes? And what is the best floor? So many options! I live in south Louisiana where it is hot and humid! I'm currently building a hen house with an attached run. Right now the plan is to put linoleum down with pine shavings but I'm wondering if I should try to make a pull out bottom under hardware cloth? My coop is 4 x 6.
