Are nest box designs REALLY that crucial? Aside from being elevated off the ground, big enough and dark enough for the hen to feel comfy, do you really need all of the other bells and whistles? My plan was to use simple white pine or plywood. Plan to build 12 x 12 x 14 sized boxes with a slanted roof back to front. Also will have a lip on the front to keep eggs from falling out and a perch about 4 inches in front of the box. Thats it. All of these fancy boxes with hinges and drop down bottoms for cleaning and exterior back doors to get the eggs. Its great if you want to be that fancy but are they needed? I guess my real question is this. How hard are the nests to clean if you dont have a floor that drops out? Seems to me I will just put on a pair of work gloves, remove old, dirty hay and fill with new fresh hay. Is there more to it? Am I missing something? Thanks all.
