New Nest Boxes

Saturday, July 23, 2011
I was very unhappy with the nest boxes in the coop that I have so I build new ones. The old one was to high and to small and to top it all off one of my chickens keep cracking her eggs when she layed them.
This is what I had

This is what my husband and I build
We used a plastic cat litter box and an old cooler with some wood and put it up on cinder blocks.

I am planing to build a feeder that I can put calcium in and put it next to the poop door close to the nest. I was putting calcium in the feed but the roosters was getting it all. I am hoping to have them in the other pen or out of here this week or next weekend.
