    I've been convinced to put in nest boxes for my ducks. Now, I want to see how others have incorporated them into their coops/tractors/other...

    I'll be building a duck tractor for my three Welsh Harlequins, if that helps with ideas or pics. Thanks in advance!

    Here are mine, simple but they do the trick:

    This is a garbage can (clean!), turned on its side. While the ducks like this one, I don't. They (of course) lay the eggs all the way in the back where I can't quite reach so I have to tip up the can and roll them out (so far non have broken, knocking on wood).

    This is the girls' favorite and mine too! Since I put this in the enclosure each girl has laid an egg a day in this box. Clean(er) eggs, woohoo!
