Q. HELLO i got a ? for you if you can help with this ? i got some bantams chicks but when they get older what size nest i need for them and can i make it out of wood ? THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR TIME.
A. For bantam chickens, I would recommend you give them a nesting box about 12″ deep, by 12″ wide. A nesting box can be anything – even a rubbermaid filled with straw or shredded newspaper. And yes, you can make it out of wood.
