Has anyone bought the nest box on ebay that opens from the back?

Hi,

The product says it is 20 or so inches high. I think they are talking about the exterior of the nest? I would personally ask them about the interior dimensions.

Additionally it says that each accommodates 8 hens? If they mean that each nest is good for 4 hens and there are two nests so that equals eight hens then i understand. If they are meaning that each nest will handle eight layers I doubt it.

It may be a great product, I would just ask questions.


Good luck

I have two of the two nest box's on my 12x12 shed turned into hen house. My Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rocks fit just fine.
