Trap nests anyone ever seen plans for THIS one?

I LOVE this idea. It is a little like milk parlors at dairy farms in that the animal is rewarded with food for the behavior.

 

I'd love to find plans for these

Think of a hen that accidentally  gets into box.....   Does not have an egg....   cant escape at this point.      It is a novelty that sounds COOL but not practical in my opinion.

 

WISHING YOU BEST :thumbsup

no different than any trap nest in that regard. If you are using trap nests you have to check them often. This is probably the dog breeder in me but if I am going to hatch out eggs from my girls I want to know whose egg is whose so my choice will be trap nests or crate each hen til she lays each day (PIA)
Of all the trap nest styles I have seen  like this one best

 

But I also plan  to place hens (or simply never hatch their eggs) that do not fit the criteria I have for the breed _ ie the Cream Legbars I don't intend to reproduce (hatch chicks from or sell hatching eggs from) the hens who do not lay a large blue egg or have bouffant crests

That is cool!

Helps with the monitoring aspect of trap nesting because at least they can eat and drink while awaiting release.....

....and good way to know that they have laid, visible at a distance if placed accordingly.

 

 

ETA: caught the name and googled but found no plans...too bad.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
