It also has the old standard wooden perches instead of the new plastic perches.

    Next Box review

    Excellent product—need better instructions so be careful! Analyze how the floor of the box is formed before adding on the back pieces because the lip need to be toward the bottom. Other than that, very pleased with the product and feel like it’s excellent for the price

    Purely from my chickens perspective, these nesting boxes are an EXEMPLARY product for the price. Durable, easy to clean, easy to maintain especially in my high traffic egg laying barns. Very pleased with the performance of these nesting/egg laying boxes. Take it from my thousands of hens: they're laying eggs in these boxes like crazy!

    Basic nest box

    Posted by Mark A. Spangler on Jul 17th 2022

    It’s a basic nest box. I chose this because it’s lighter than wood and easier, lighter, and slightly cheaper than building one from plywood. It was missing the 2 front parts, but they took care of the problem in a timely manner. I was not aware that I would have to rivet most of it together. I already had a rivet gun so it was no big deal. I’d buy again.

    My chickens say "BUY THIS NESTING BOX NOW" for the following reasons:

    Arrived early, fast and super easy to assemble, durable, LEAST expensive nesting box in the marketplace, easy to clean, fun to paint and most importantly, I put fake grass squares, shavings then real coastal hay in each nesting box and -voila- all 1,200 of my chickens immediately jumped in and started laying eggs. They love the fresh NEW nests. The chickens highly recommend buying this product for it put a smile on their beaks! Cheers from all the ladies at American Egg Company (Texas).
