Pic by @zazouse Nest boxes, those carefully designed coop essentials where we're all hoping our laying ladies would deposit the rent. (Note: hoping) This week I would like to hear you all's thoughts on all things "nest boxes"... Specifically: - What do you use for nest boxes? - What bedding materials do you use in your nest boxes? - Maintaining your nest boxes. (Cleaning, pest control, etc) - Managing broody hen(s) in the nest box. - How do you make your nest boxes attractive for the hens? (I.e. encourage them to use the boxes, instead of dropping their eggs all over the yard) - How do you discourage your hens from sleeping in the nest boxes? Anything you'd like to add?
