    I was reviewing nesting box lining.....those little nesting box pads I have seen look good but are disposable.

    I am thinking of the vent filters we have that are washable, is there any such thing for nesting boxes that we can wash and dry ?

    Nest boxes
    In my nest boxes I fold a feed bag to fit (nest boxes are 1 ft³). When a bag gets soiled; fold a new one; pop out the soiled; pop in the new. Feed bags are a nylon mesh bag frozen poop just peels off in below freezing temperatures and just flakes off in summer when left out in the sun to bake and dry.
