    Touch wood i have only 1 chick that is a bit smaller so i just pop it into nest of youngsters same size, that seems to work for me I have only hand reared or toped up British when i had them.

    Changing the nest pans...

    Post  zipdogso on Tue Mar 20 2012, 23:10

    That wsa why I liked the bigger nest pans I had last year...the hen had to build quite a nest to fill it., the chicks then shat on the wide edges of the nest rather than in the box...very messy nest but minimal cleaning of the box...
