    All nest boxes tal up valuable room. But they're a necessity!

    If you still have the lids you can cut them down too so there is a lip on front of nests. Keep nest material in and eggs from rolling out.

    We took a small plastic storage tote 12 x 12 and cut a hole in the front and used them. Works pretty good
