    I'm new to this and was wondering what you use for bantam nesting boxes? I have bantam Buff Cochins, Bantam Mille Fleur Cochins, OEGB Self Blues, OEGB Red Pyles, Porcelain D'Uccles, Mottled Jap Bantams and Barred Rock Bantams.

    Mine lay just fine inside the nestboxes built into the coop.

    However, I also provide tidy cat boxes all around the coop in case they want to use those.

    One of my little silkies (she's in the picture) prefers to lay her eggs between the wall and a sheet of plastic that is stapled to the wall.

    I like your cat liter bucket idea, I love to recycle stuff when I can....I don't have any cats but I have friends that do...

    My banty lays in a small storage tub I had laying around. About the size of a large salad bowl [​IMG]
