    This may be a hairbrained idea, but it may be really "thrifty".
    Would a repurposed dresser drawer, with no bottom, using the drawer sliding action as access to eggs, work for nest boxes? [​IMG]

    This is a rough idea, first concept drawing.
     
  2. It might. You'd have to have some kind of predator-proofing, so nothing could just yank open the drawer and help themselves, though.

    True. There would be a latch of some sort.
