Our twelve chicken pen contains two coops, each with three nest boxes. The hens have easily accepted the outdoor carpet lining in the nest boxes. The carpeting makes it amazingly easy to clean the nest boxes by simply removing it for a good shake out or rinsing. The hens seem to develop a liking to a certain nest box. Today we were surprised to see two hens sharing a nest box and both of them laid eggs before departing the nest 🙂
