    I want to build or buy the ones that the eggs roll so them can't be eaten. But we were looking at these if we can't find plans or buy the other type. I was just wondering if the price was right.

    If you email me I can send you plans for a two nest rollout box that you can modify to fit your needs. However, building a 4 nest box will take about $50 in materials.

    Sometimes with any nest box it takes a while for the birds to start using it.
