    So I've been searching the various nest box threads for the ones I want.

    Someone posted some excellent looking ones they bought from Lowes (not actual boxes, they were something else). I've been reading through all the various threads and can't find them.

    Does anyone remember them? I wandered around every hardware store like a freak the last few weeks seeing if I could spot them - I couldn't.


    Any help would be appreciated. They were black, and seemed to be able to stack I think. They looked sort of like a bin with a lip thingie. [​IMG]

    I recently got some at Big Lots for $6/bin. They come in bright colors and are stacking bins with a lip. Like this but colors

    is a link to some at lowe's you can check to see if they carry them at your store, buy them online, and pick them up there the same day.

    : Here are the ones I got

    did have to screw them together and to the wall so they didn't knock them over.

    Any type of box that big enough is good. I built my wooden one, but end up using the free card board box from Costco because my chickens start to sleep on it. The Costco one easy to replace as need.
