What do you use in your nesting boxes??

Recommended Posts

Hello All

New to posting here but have been reading your comments for the last few weeks.

Yesterday I assembled my new eglu cube and run and this morning am going to collect four chicks :D

However please advise me on what to line the nesting box with and weather you put wood shavings in the roosting area :?::?::?:

Your advise and comments really appreciated. :?

From a newbie in Wardle near Rochdale

I line the nestbox with a couple of sheets of kitchen roll or newspaper, easy to remove and replace quickly in the morning if a hen decides to sleep and poop in there during the night.


The poop tray is lined with newspaper, again easy to scoop up and dispose of :)
