Keep your chicken compadres comfy and your eggs intact with the Homestead Essentials 3 Compartment Chicken Nesting Box. This roll-out nesting box has a slight tilt that encourages eggs to roll to safety underneath the lid and help limit any damage by the adult birds. It features a no-perch roof to prevent roosting on the top and a large handle for easy egg collection without disturbing your hen friends. This three-compartment chicken nesting box comes complete with a filtered base on the laying tray that helps minimize cleaning by allowing unwanted material to fall through.

    Nothing wrong with the design

    By Smallbean on Aug 26, 2021

    The concept is great and the design works as it should. When assembled correctly, the trays stay in place. The instructions are not super clear and the pieces are unmarked (would be helpful to have something like little stickers with arrows or "up"/"down", "back"/"front"), but they are fine. Took me about 15 mins to put it together. Agree with the statement that some holes are not perfectly aligned, but the metal is thin and the assembly is possible. It's light and easy to clean.

    Great concept, poor design

    By Dallas53 on Mar 17, 2021

    This nestbox comes unassembled. It was not hard to put together, just a pain. After hanging in the coop, the chickens loved it... BUT, the lip in back that holds the tray in place is not wide enough, and the metal under the tray is too thin to hold it in the slot. The tray slips forward, then flips up in back which causes the tray to hang vertically, or worse, come completely out of the housing. Also, the tray accumulates poop, so the eggs get dirty. I modified the tray by cutting a slot in front smaller than the egg in order for the poop to fall out rather than collect. I also put a strap around the front of the trays, and a 1 1/2" block over the back of the tray to hold it in. It This nestbox comes unassembled. It was not hard to put together, just a pain.

I doubt that I will buy again, for the the time and money I have in it, I can build my own. … more

    Good quality nesting box

    By jenmb on Feb 14, 2021

    I wanted something easier to disinfect than the wooden nesting boxes I was using. This is metal and plastic so it’s easy to clean. I like that the bottom tray is plastic so it’s not as cold for the hens in the winter. I put it together pretty easily, although the instructions weren’t super helpful. It definitely helps to have another set of hands fit the initial construction. Some of the holes for the screws seemed slightly off center but I got it to work. Be aware that you’ll be tightening the screws in very tight places and you may have some difficulty if you’re using a normal-size screwdriver. I haven’t had it too long but a couple of the hens are starting lay in it so I guess they don I wanted something easier to disinfect than the wooden nesting boxes I was using.
