The chicken’s nesting boxes are finally complete. This was the last major project toward getting the chickens ready for egg season.
I can pinch a penny so hard it leaves a mark. When I was at the feed store and online, I saw three-compartment plywood nest boxes for $40-$60. That seemed a little pricey to me, I thought I could build my own for a lot less. A trip to the dollar store and 10 bucks later, I had all the supplies I needed. I built and installed them all yesterday, and I must say I think it will work beautifully. Plus I saved around $30. Now the ladies should be comfy cozy when it comes time to make me some eggs!
I have attached a pic below. I have the full album on Facebook it you’d like to see how I put them together and maybe try it for yourself. I think the only thing I’d like to add to the boxes is a poop shield for the top. I’ll let you know as soon as I find an egg in there!
