    I want to install windows inside my chicken coop, however they would be on the opposite wall of my nesting boxes. I wasnt sure if it would become a problem or not?

    Any opinions?

    There are a lot of people that will suggest a nesting box be here or there, I find that chickens don't follow those rules...

    They will generally use a nesting box placed anywhere in the coop as long as they are comfortable with it, and that level of comfort varies by chicken...

    In short put the nesting boxes where you want and see what happens, if they refuse to use them tweak things...
