The CHICKBOX is a plastic freestanding or mountable nest box for chickens.
A very practical idea to save broken eggs and therefore prevent egg eating, as well as being a useful way of converting a shed or outbuilding for use as a hen house. We would suggest allowing one nest box per 4 birds.
These sturdy plastic nest boxes from BEC are able to slot together, side by side, to make a wall of several boxes. Or, with instructions provided, a frame can be built to house the boxes off the ground.
You can close them up at night to prevent overnight roosting, which fouls them, and then during the day the front drops down and a plastic cover (not shown here) covers the tray holding the eggs and therefore stopping and egg-eaters getting at the eggs.
Every Chick Box comes with a black plastic rollaway insert tray so they are easy to keep clean and, being plastic, the whole unit can easily be washed. Very adaptable boxes, they can also be used as normal nest boxes without the rollaway inserts if required.
Measurements (all external): 33cm wide; 39cm high; 35cm deep, front drop down bar extends a further 23cm from the front. The box is shaped and does narrow towards the back where it measures 29cm wide x 35cm high.
