The girls like the outside nest boxes in the smaller coop, and I wanted them on the big coop to free up more floor space. Having the nest boxes outside will allow more room to move around and also more breathing space come winter when they'll be cooped up for longer periods of time with the cold temps and shorter days.

None of the girls seemed interested in going in yet, so I put the
dishpan (their old nest box) in there to give them a clue

The photo above makes the nest boxes look pretty small, but they're much
larger than they look from that angle. I could almost fit two dishpans in there.
