    Hi all,

    My husband and I have 5 hens, and two galvanized nesting boxes in the coop. I have been thinking about putting up curtains, as the other day I noticed we may have an egg eater in the group. Any ideas on how to attach the curtains to a galvanized nesting box? I'm attaching a link to the type of nesting boxes we have. Thanks!

    Aside from nestboxes (I'm not good with stuff like that lol) you can probably tell which one is eating eggs, because it might have some orangy yellow dried goo around nostrils and beak! I think someone on here can tell you how to break an eggeating hen! xx[​IMG]

    For a temporary fix, you could use duct tape. For something more permanent drill holes through wood lathing and the nest poxes. Attach curtain material to the wood and bolt across the front of the nest boxes. [​IMG]
