PLEASE READ ENTIRE LISTING - THIS IS A DIY KIT

The red box is actually the first box after it has been painted and is for reference so you get a good idea what you can do with them

Custom designed rustic chicken laying box .

After Caring for chickens for many years I have bought and built literally dozens of nesting boxes. Some worked others not so much
So I have taken what I have observed and I designed these nesting boxes to accommodate the needs of a hen when she's ready to lay.
The design incorporates many elements that have proven VERY successful.

The Approx 16 x 16 Inch size works VERY well
They are super simple to install ... just screw them to the wall or set them on a shelf
They are easy to enter so the chicken feels comfy using them
They offer privacy which chickens seek when they are in the mood to lay their eggs
They have a slanted top to discourage roosting on top so you don't end up with a nest box covered in poop
They are designed so the eggs don't roll out but are easy to pick up
And of coarse they look great too

You will receive all the pre cut pieces required to assemble this rustic nesting Box
They will be unpainted and made from repurposed used lumber
They can easily be assembled if you are handy with a hammer or a screw gun
I glue and staple them when I build them but gluing and using finishing nails or wood screws works just fine too

I am offering them as a DIY kit for those that want customize them and save on some shipping costs !
