    Could you post pictures of your nestboxes if you have any, I have three in a row and I want to add three more but thinking of putting three more ontop of what I already have.

    And one before we painted them from the top. That whole top opens up and is on hinges. Sorry it's a bit blurry

    I am so glad you posted pics. That is the type we want to build. With a slanted top so the chickens don't roost on it.

    We made ours out of old cabinets. One side has two boxes, the other holds a 50 lb. bag of feed - there's also a little extra storage on the side above the nestboxes. Cat litter boxes work also (you can see one in the corner. Our 10 hens use both the homemade set and the litterboxes.
