    Very nice pictures. One day I want a place out in the country where I can let my chickens have that much roaming space. (And horse, pigs, and goats too.)

    Do they have nests inside the barn/coop or do they lay out in the grass??

    They look so good against the green grass. Very nice!

    Quote:They have nest boxes in the barn. Two long rows of double-sided nests. The eggs roll out the back of the nests to a center conveyor belt that brings the eggs into the egg room.
