Plastic Nesting Box

Good Boxes!

A review on: Plastic Nesting Box
austrolover1

Pros: Easy to clean;

Cons: Have to bend over to get eggs; eggs break on the bottom if there is not enough hay; too big, have found two hens stacked on top of each other 4 times.

First nest boxes I have ever had and overall they are pretty good, but there are a lot of things I have problems with. I couldn't even fit them into the cons section... Homemade nest boxes work twice as well.

Wood nest boxes rot in a year. With this pressure washing cleans it like new. 15 capacity is more than enough for 100 hens.... Sometimes 2 hens will be in the same slot. Keep an eye out on the internet, craigslist, and...

Best Nest Box - Rollaway Nest Box - Community Style

“We had them in the coop for about two weeks now.  We tried doing the various suggestions to get the hens to use the boxes,but no success.   We have RR Reds and Gold Stars.  They lay them everywhere but in the box.  I'm thinking it doesn't look natural to them so they are reluctant to use it for laying.  Some walk around in it,but they never actually lay in it.   If...” --egglover123

“I have three of these nest boxes and have given two as gifts. My Swedish Flower Hens, Easter Eggers, and Legbars really like these. My Swedes and Easter Eggers like them so much, they were fighting over who got to use the box so I installed a second one in that run. They do try to fit two at a time in there when I first let them out of the coop into the run where the boxes are hung. Inside...” --OldChurchEggery1

Green Garden Chicken Doc Woody Nesting Box

Green Garden Chicken Doc Woody Nesting Box

“ This is a picture of what these Nest Boxes look like from GreenGardenChicken.com:   I would love to have these nesting boxes in my coop because they have great eye appeal, have a slant that discourages chickens to sleep on them and their overall design. This laying box can hold a broody mother hen's chicks and her eggs in and not fall out. Same goes for other hens as well. I love...” --Whittni
