    I put an old branch in with my 2 week olds to teach to sleep on a roost. they all love it. hope this works as I don't need 8 hens fighting over 3 boxes. dont panic more boxes coming soon as is a bigger coop.

    You only need one nesting box for every 4 or 5 hens. You should be fine.[​IMG]

I know I sound crazy.
