Pintail Nest Box Ideas

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have 3 pairs of North American Pintails on my pond, they are all pinioned as well.  Do they take to nest boxes or hen houses?  Any ideas on what to have for them or what to build?  

 

Much Thanks for any help.

Quack Addict.  About 60 exotic and migratory waterfowl here but love to hunt ducks as well. Ironic huh? Also raise some ornamental pheasants and some peafowl as well. And a very understanding wife of over 25 years!

I had three pair and all avoided the nest boxes and chose ground nests under bushes and one out in the open next to the pond in the aviary! Good luck this nesting season!
