    Finally found the picture of our nest boxes - we put them up awhile ago.

    We slanted the top and covered it with aluminum flashing - it works great! They just can't roost up there.

    I did learn to chop the straw up a bit, they still strew it all over the floor but not quite as quickly! And the best thing is they lay eggs in them! [​IMG]

    Nice looking nest boxes! Is the interior of your hen house whitewashed? It looks very clean!

    Thanks for everyone's comments! Hubby did a great job building them!

    Quote:No, it isn't whitewashed, it's painted with two coats of exterior latex. I'm hoping it'll be easier to clean that way. It doesn't look quite that good anymore, believe me! Chicken dust clings to everything!
