Laying Nests & Nesting Boxes

Plastic Nestboxes: Fleming Outdoors

I have 4 of them in my building coop.

Guinea Goonie

Pros: excellent product. easy to install, clean and these are durable

My hens love these boxes. From big old Austrolups to the bantams. You can mount them low, medium or high and the hens will find them. I put alfalpha hay in them and the hens think it is perfect. You can just throw hay in them and the hens will take care of the rest. Even the game/wild hens like them.
This is where they'll wanna lay...

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
