wow its so easy and simple love it
How many chickens per tote? I have six, would I need more than one tote? Two perhaps?
I tried this with a smaller size tote, but it wasn't very functional. I thought the 18 gallon would be too big, BUT now I see that YOU ARE RIGHT! Going to set one up today. Thanks for a great vid. !!!
I saw a sticker on the side that said it was an 18 gallon tub.
Great idea! What size plastic tub are you using? This would be easy to clean out and also move (in the case of a broody hen) to a safer place. Thanks for the video and please make more. 🙂
when i did this i cut out the whole bottom and used it as a divider and made 2 nest in one
You can screw the nest box down to the 2×6.
If you have a problem with snakes you can put the nest box up on a 2×6 across 2 cinder blocks.
The tub was $5.
Great idea, thanks
Wouldn't you have a problem with snakes eating your eggs with that just sitting on the ground?
I think it's a neat idea. Probably more expensive than building one out of wood but probably have less germs as you could wash this one thoroughly. I'm gonna give it a go.
