    Quote:I never did, but if you go to my new thread (Starting a new coop) I just posted today how to build nest boxes, it is very simple.

    I bought mine from Cutler. It's terrific. A big bird nest, three nests for 10 girls who love to share.

    Am in the process of making plans to change the nesting system to a front roll out as I have an egg eater which I would like to discourage. Hoping my plans work.

    Our nest boxes are the larger size plastic dish pans (Wal Mart) they were under $3 ea. We cut an entrance -leaving a lip to keep the nesting material in. I wanted plastic for ease of cleaning. I also saw 5 gallon buckets laid on their side used as nesting boxes...dump and clean! I saw wood nesting boxes at TSC for $10.
