Can a Jersey Giant fit into a 12x12x12 nesting box? Is there anything that they might need in the coop?(like how a Phoenix needs high perches)

They usually recomened a lower perch 2' for giants and a bigger nest box. With out really knowing for sure I would say 18 by 18 inches. There is a giant thred here with people on it that know a lot more then I do.

That is a standard size nestbox, so I would go a bit larger for a jersey giant...maybe 14" square. The largest box I have seen in the forum was 16" square! WOW!!

Wonder what bird that was for? I have heard that the hen should be able to turn around comfortably in the nest. Hope that helps, and Good Luck!!
