Does anyone have a plan for a build your own roll away nest box.
I did a search on here but I didn`t see one.

We have a bought one but I don`t like it.

Welcome to the coop. You don't like it or your hens do not like it? I have also some bought ones, and my hens have never liked them.

I don`t like them... and the girls didn`t love them.

Just wanted to make my own.
Did you make any changes or are you just living with it.
Btw we will have 50 in the coop.

Thanks!

They use them if I put straw into them, but then the eggs do not roll away.

Yeah exactly...I just built some more like we used to have.

We will see if they like the roll away of my design better.
