    Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    I recently acquired a friend for my lonely hen. My hen Chippy does not enjoy sharing, especially with newcomers. Chippy laid her egg, and decided to sit there like a brat.

    Miriam: "Hey, any chance you have any room for a second?"
    Chippy: "No. -_-"

    I showed Miriam the new "deluxe" nesting box on the second level.

    It was good enough for Miriam! This weekend I need to buy/make a new, real nest box.

    I cut a Bud Light case in half, and reinforced it with Gorilla Tape. It was a little small for her, but would be like a palace for bantams to lay in.

    Thanks for reading, and please post pictures of your most original nest boxes below!!!
