    Trying to build a mini - coop for maybe two or three chickens.
    Anybody have a rule of thumb for the minimum dimensions on a nest box?

    Thanks

    Thanks!
    Exactly what I needed.
    Wonder how I missed it when I was looking around the Coop Design page.

    Hey,
    How did you get to that page from the Coop Design section?

    All I was able to see from the Coop Design section were the Coops / Incubator / Brooders.

    Thanks

    Quote:I recently read through it myself so I knew where to go since I recently made my own nesting boxes .

    Let us know how it goes!
