Nice Nest box One nesting box for every hens. Size: Nest boxes should be big enough for your hen to stand in comfortably. Usually 12 x 12 x 12 inches is adequate, but building bigger is usually a good idea.
a very neat 1918 poster (post wwOne) saying Uncle Sam Expects YOU to keep hens and raise chickens. two hens in the back yard for each person in the house will keep a family in fresh eggs. not a bad idea for today as well.
