    My chickens are 17.5 weeks old, how are my nest boxes made with antique potato crates?

    Very nice indeed.
    Air can move so no hot hens, roomy, well lined. Yes well done!

    Very clever idea = I like recycling too but these do look incredible.....If I were a hen I would definately use one.

    Really nice job. In my world, some of the chickens would ignore that beautiful lovingly crafted unit and lay in the corner on the right!!!!

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I acquired the crates from some property my parents just purchased, that was an egg farm 40+ years ago. It took some thinking on how to create it and alot of reading on BYC of what to do and not to do . Thank you fellow BYC members.
