These box's are easy to assemble and hang. They are durable and cleaning is a breeze!! My hens love them, as I do!!!!

I only have 5 hens right now and they made their own nest under a board in the corner of the hutch. Could not get them to use the "ChickBox" until today. Had to block off their home built nest! I will buy some more later.

I had tried 2 homemade nest box design concepts (1-plywood & 1-bucket) before deciding to buy these. Wish I would have gotten them from day 1!
The nest boxes seem to be very durable and are very easy to clean. I was surprised at how think the plastic is.
The egg trays are what really make the product great. The slope is just right and the little trays allow me to not be worried about checking for eggs so often during the day. The tray has fold up flaps that catch on the removable front ledge to ensure that the tray doesn't slide out.
I find that the eggs remain cleaner and are less likely to get cracked, pecked or broken.
If you have an egg eater in your flock these wont guarantee it will never happen again but the chances are greatly reduced.
Although they are expensive I would say that they are definitely worth the cost. You won't be disappointed.

We now have six boxes - they work great - easy to clean, easy to close, clean eggs, durable - will get more should there be a need -

I was a little skeptical when I first received the Chick Box. However, after a couple of days, most of the hens accepted them. One or two chose to lay on the floor instead. I am a little concerned about how well they will stand the test of time without cracking along the back where they are attached.
