It was fast shipping and I love my product.

I wish I could give a higher rating as I love the concept of these egg boxes but look and ingenuity are somewhat irrelevant if the chickens don't use them. I purchased four and installed them in my coop and over a 10 week period we've had one egg total laid in a box from four chickens. I tried fake eggs, different bedding, different stumps nearby to make access easier, nothing's worked. It's a shame as I'd love to get more with the new flock of birds nearing the laying age for use as outside nest boxes but I'm wary of doing so. I note a number of others have had apparently had success.

i have been using these nesting boxes for a couple of days now and their are working perfect, nothing has broke and my chickens love them! I'm going to be ordering more because i want them for my second coop.

Can't say I recommend these. I have 2 of these and ended up having to take them down after both of the flimsy perches got broken by my chickens jumping up on them. I came in to find the spring loaded locking mechanism had broken on one of them and the egg tray and perch was laying on the ground. My chickens seem to much prefer the Kuhl nesting boxes that I had been using. I bought 2 of these to test them and if they worked out I was going to buy another 10. However, I won't be making the purchase because they just aren't good value for money, in my opinion.

Very easy to attach to hang on wall. Easy to clean, and the chickens jumped right in and are laying. If they're happy, so am I.
