    Can you tell me how big those are? Or give me the name they had them under at Lowe's? I would like to check them out on the Lowe's website.

    One more thing. Do your hens have a problem getting to the top nest without a ledge to stand on? I was wondering if they would pull the nest down while trying to enter.

    Should be easy to clean. What about screwing a small towel rod to the top one for a entry perch? Did you ancor them to the wall to prevent tipping, afraid the birds would not reenter if they fell over once ot twice. They can get skiddish easily.
