Bee boy, yes.  I have three nest boxes in each chickenhouse, and they only like to use one box, makes for an easy egg picking up time.  Good luck with your chickens, when you getting them?  Have that great and most awesomey great day, health.  Cindi

When three of them decide to go broody in the one small nest, with one upside down and legs sticking up in the air, then it might be time to manage things differently.

i had to leave to go get gas for our generator. they say it's gonna snow 12 inches!! and it's gonna be icy so the power will probably be out. any way, i am so exited about geting baby chicks!!! i am going to get three hens: one silkie (named luna from harry potter) onebuff orpington  named heromine (from harry potter) and one barred plymoth rock (named taylor). they will have them by the end of feburary. they arn't selling them at there store like a feed store. i have almost fineshed the plans for my coop. it is going to be 6 feet long and 3 feet wide. the coop will be 3 feet x 3 feet and so will the run.
