Emergency Nest Boxes !

This morning I found myself needing a couple of nest boxes to go in with my rehoused chickens  ( Avian Flu restrictions! Grrrr ! ) So I took a couple of spare 60 litre barrels and took a jigsaw to them and this is what I came up with. I think they'll work and I've already put them in with the birds.

I sometimes put large feed buckets on the floor with the front cut out like you have done John, its better for the heavy birds and better than laying on the floor.

Also if they go broody I can easily pick the whole thing up and move to the broody coop.

Looks a good job  

It was simples.
