    I had found a blue print/plans for nest box that is on the exterior of the coop with a slanted hinged top so that eggs could be collected from outside of the coop. But now I cant find those plans anywhere, I am still searching but may need some help.

    I want to make one that looks like a flower box but actually is a nest box this way the neighbors wont know lol I plan of making a fake flower pot with flowers on the top that I could remove and then open to get my eggies.

    thanks

    This is the design I used. I'm happy with the way they worked out. I built it as a seperate unit and then cut a hole in the wall to mount it on the outside. The perch I added on after the boxes were mounted.
