    Anyone know where the most inexpensive nesting boxes can be bought. We might need a new galvanized one with 10 boxes.
    Thanks,

    The MOST inexpensive is in the dumpster behind your local grocery store. It's called a cardboard box! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If you're only wanting the galvanized kind, I'd try farm auctions or craigs list. Birdaholic may or may not have been joking [​IMG] but that's about true. Nest boxes can literally be anything, and can be built very cheaply...some even use the old 5 gallon plastic buckets turned on their sides...old dresser drawers, etc.

    I use covered cat litter boxes I found at Goodwill. The girls love them and the cover creates privacy. They are easy for moving because of the handle and easy to clean out as well...
