How to Make a Chicken Nesting Box

Eric shows how to DIY two types of chicken nesting boxes.

The first one is a 2-hole chicken nesting box from a small piece of plywood that’s 30″ x 30″, plus a second, smaller piece for the back.

The second one is a single chicken nesting box, and it’s done in a similar fashion, using a tape rule and a pencil to measure the pieces, a flex to cut them and nails and a hammer to piece them together.
