Nest Box Designs

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

 

Finally got the adobe Acrobat so can upload plans in PDF to the forums.

 

Nest Box Plans - These are a full size version of the Nest Boxes I use.

 

I haven't included the concave as you can decide what you want to do.

 

I use External Ply for this job as you will want to soak them in Disinfectant between rounds.

........and just deep enough to keep the chicks in the nest a bit longer. Some people are worried that it's too hard for the hen to get out. But none of my hens have had any problems geting in and out.

I am sure "in the wild" they have further to climb in and out of tree hollows :blink:

I am really looking forward to my new nestboxes, Daz :fear

Yes that's right some nest mainly the ones you buy are much to low and you can not put in a spare concave. I have 2 bought ones from the pet shop and they are pains in the bum, because the chicks jump out when they're not even 3 weeks old.

Most of mine nest box are similar to yours, but having the slide in front cut into 2 is the best, don't know why I never thought of it before, and I have ones that the lid opens from the top and they are a pain in the but to keep clean.

Daz today Greg just cut me 5 out so I can make them up and replace them with the old nest as they finish their current nest ready for the next birds to go in, ( That will be the birds I bred from last year and my new birds that Greg bought me for my birthday. ;)
