**Advice/reviews needed on Premade roll away nest box "The Best Nest Box"?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking for anyone who has bought "The Best Nest Box"

Brand name : The Best Nest Box

I have an established flock, and just recently expanded run with separate coop for my new comers!!
I have 15 new chicks(7 week olds) and before they start laying, I wanted to buy a front roll out nesting box.
I am considering purchasing this nesting box, but can't seem to find too many reviews on it. I realize that many of you just go and build your own roll away nesting boxes, however I want to just be lazy and buy it!
Has anyone had issues with it being a cummunity nesting box?
I always thought hens would prefer nesting boxes with partitions.

If anyone has these particular boxes, or anyone have another premade front roll out nesting box, please give me your thoughts and expierences.
Thanks

I would love to know if anyone has used them as well. We built our own last year but the wood does not hold up well when made from osb boards, and if you go with heavier material you end up spending quite a bit more and have a very heavy set up. Not to mention that wood DIY boxes are not easy to clean or sanitize. We are going to purchase one of these this spring, so if there are no responses at least I can update this summer!

Ok, thanks for the response. Did you build yours with or without partitions?
I worry that the lack of dividers is going to be a issue.

What does your chicken do in there box? Ours are wood floors and wall and all I have done the last year was replace bedding once and only cause I wanted to see which one the liked .Straw, pine chips and hay. They like the wood chips best as I can tell right now. I'm switching it up again next week but for the last 3 weeks they have been more eggs in the pine chips no matter what box it is in.

 

I am also looing for 3 boxes and prefer rollaway for the run. I'll be following this tread.
