    It's small but absolutely perfect. I had put a golf ball in their nest in their chicken tractor and had let them out yesterday mid-morning. We found it about 2:00 p.m. and so proud of her for going back to the tractor, which they rarely do after letting them out, and laid in the nest. What a good girl!
