  • High density polyethylene that is easy to clean and will not rust, rot, or corrode.
    Ventilation holes for fresh air.
    Sloped roof prevents roosting.
    Easy to mount and remove for cleaning.
    Space saving modular layout - can mount vertically or side by side.
    Perch gives hens a place to land before entering the nest.
    Raised panel in front keeps bedding and eggs from being pushed out.

    "Years of Use"
    Pros - Light weight, easy to clean and easy to move.
    Cons - Had to buy it unlike homemade ones
    I have has the same hang on the Wall nest box for 7 years. For the $20 it cost it was well worth it. Easy to relocate unlike custom built boxes for exact areas. Cleaning with a scrub brush and oil soap every now and again is a big bonus too. Opening has been large enough for my biggest hens and two determined bantams can fit in there with ease.

    "Pretty good nest box"
    Pros - Easy to clean, light weight.
    Cons - None so far
    We bought 2 of these boxes about a year ago and put them in the coop before the girls started laying. They have been used every day for over six months by 5 to 9 chickens. We had one girl that preferred the corner on the floor for a while but eventually she started using a box.
    We have been happy with them and our girls seem to like them. We added a third box before our pullets started laying just in case. Our Australorp pullets are big girls and they have no problem using them. With the newbies figuring things out there have been a couple broken eggs. I simply took the box off the wall, rinsed it out and rehung when dry.
    It's very hot and dry here and the plastic isn't brittle, no cracks or damage in any way. Very happy we opted for these rather than building wood boxes.

    My hens use a cat carrier with the top of for easy access to eggs. My only problem is all 3 hens are using the 1 in the back and 1 hens broody so the other 2 squeeze in next to her when they lay there eggs. I know I must remove them sins they will hatch later than the other eggs that I fortunately marked with pencil.

    I love ours, they're easy to install and easy to clean. Win win.

    Good points. You should send them to the manufacturer.

    If they were the only nests available for first laying hens, it "might" go better, use wise. You know how there are 10 nests and they all use one?? Mine will stand and sqwuack at the hen in the nest that they all want. Others empty!

    Nice review Blooie, thanks! My girls better not see these boxes or they'll be putting them on their Christmas wish lists

    ChinoChix, good point about installing on wall studs. In the future we plan to upgrade our coop and I didn't think about if we use the studs!!
  9. WthrLady
    I agree. Too small for my large orpingtons. Forget the jerseys!
  10. Angiebubs
    I have 9 of these currently, yet they always seem to dog pile 2-3 in one. And that includes my Wyndottes, Orpingtons, LF Cochins etc. Shoot even my rooster once thought he had to show the hens where to lay and climbed in LOL Wish I had taken a picture.
