I was surprised how fast my product arrived. Living in Hawai’i, delivery usually takes a long time. The installation instruction provided was a bit difficult for me. I had to go to YouTube for assistance which helped a lot. Overall a good experience. Mahalo!

What a pain to assemble. Use the video and be prepared to pause it as you go. The paper instructions are really bad. It took me 45 minutes to assemble it, and it wasn’t intuitive at all. They do a nice job and mark each part. They definitely know what they are doing, its just that there are so many ways to line up the parts, you really have to pay attention, and be patient.
But, it is built well, has everything you need, well-crafted, and sturdy. Others are flimsy. This is probably the highest quality nesting box on the market, and it will last 25 years easy.
Think about the proper sizing. The medium says up to 20 hens “throughout the day”. I missed that part, and with 12 hens, there’s a line to get in haha.
I would recommend getting a larger one than you think because we are likely going to get a second one because oddly some hens lay eggs right outside of it.

My hens started eating eggs so I wasn't getting any at all. I decided to try the HenGear nesting box and now am getting plenty of eggs! The only problem I am having now are two hens are staying in the box and have figured out how to keep eggs under them. Those two will have to be moved out for a while and either let them have eggs to hatch or break the broody cycle. I definitely recommend this nesting box!

Durable with great features, and cleaner eggs!

Works great to keep the eggs clean. We have 48 chickens and there is just a bit of poo in where the eggs are. But much better than the other nesting boxes we had.
