if their new pairings iw ould put the hen in the box and let the cock see her from outside at first when you introduce the cock to the box turn the nest bowl upside down so the hen can get on it out of the way of the cock as some cocks are very aggressive ...if its a pair that have been together before then put the pair in it should be no problem at all ...no spare cocks or hens in that section with the boxes should see successful breeding atb

Let them run. Let them pick and choose their own. Mates or boxes.

i do this with my racers and it works well provided you have the correct amount of cocks and hens else it never settles down ...similar to what denise has already tried...have found the best way is to let the cocks pick their own boxes and once settled to those boxes then introduce the hens
