I have a small coop (actually a rabbit hutch) for a pair of bantams and I’m wondering if anyone sells nest boxes that I can hang on the outside (after cutting an access hole in the side of the coop) so I won’t always have to go into the pen to gather eggs. My rooster is a stinker and spurs me sometimes. Lol

He’s a blue laced red Wyandotte bantam and I can’t replace him. Had a devil of a time finding any to begin with.

Dimensions (in feet by feet) and pics would help immensely.

But I'm guessing it's going to be difficult to find some premade.
Most premade nests I've seen are meant to be used inside and out of the weather.
Might be easier to cut an access door rather than attach a nest outside coop.
How handy are you?

Hoping your cock/erels aggression is not hereditary.
