They were used to the box/cage and didn't try to move kittens after giving birth.
I also would recomend you have two pillowcases ready - one has newspaper in it to absorb the blood, etc. After all kittens are born, switch to a pillowcase with 1-2 towels inside. Its soft and the kittens cannot get their tiny claws caught in the towel fabric.
I like the pillowcase idea. I use the big cages, as well, a week before due. Mine are fine with it and I can rest easy knowing where the babies are located. I use those rubbermade containers (cut a doorway in front) for the boxes. It works perfectly - you can open the lid to check on them and it is easy to clean. The cats feel secure in them, as well. My cats, though, want me to be right next to them. Peterbalds are so people focused that they cry if I am not sitting next to them during birth.
