The box floor is lower than the entrance, which helps prevent loss of bedding.

Little Giant Plastic Nesting Box is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Enticement Needed!! Our hens immediately began using the Little Giant Nesting Boxes and didn’t have to be enticed at all. In fact the three Little Giant Nesting Boxes we had were sometimes all full, so we recently purchased a fourth nesting box for the Bantams and Silkies and placed it much lower to accommodate them. All the girls seem to enjoy the seclusion each box provides and we haven’t heard any complaints!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice nest box! I bought several of these a month ago and my chickens are just getting uaed to them. The box itself is well made and easy clean out. However, there is a hole on the back side of the box, that when installed allows for bedding to fall out. Not a good design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nesting box I just bought this and am really glad I did. I was going to build something but then I saw these advertised at Tractor Supply, I knew these would be perfect for my chickens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Nest Boxes ! I’ve used these nest boxes for three years now with no problems. My chickens seem to love them and I do too! Very easy to remove and clean and all my chickens fit inside, even my largest Buff Orpington.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Giant Plastic Nesting Box I have purchases several of these nesting boxes within the last few years. They are still holding up well, even in our freezing winters here, and the chickens have no problems using them. I like the slanted top of the box as the chickens can't stand on top of them and make a mess. I also like the pull-out stand so the chickens can get inside the box. They are made of one-piece molded plastic and there is nothing to assemble. I easily installed them using screws and 1" washers to keep the boxes from coming off the wall. This is the only type of nesting box I will buy, as the wooden boxes I once used eventually came apart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice design & sturdy I bought 3 of these for my coop. Easy to put up and keep clean. Only problem is the size. My smaller hens use them but My larger hens won't go in them. wish there was another size up for my bigger girls to fit in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these nesting boxes! I bought 2 of these. They are so easy to mount and clean plus no sharp edges to possibly injure. Very sturdy. Great value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Little Giant Nesting box I purchased one as an extra nesting box because sometimes there's a back up in line at the nesting box in the coop and my old chickens sometimes wont let the new ones in there to lay. (there are 4 nesting boxes in there but they only want to use one)The quality of the Little Giant plastic nesting box is nice, I ordered online and picked up at my store and that was smooth as it could be and they are of good quality and easy enough to hang with zip ties but I wont bother purchasing another one because my chickens don't go near it and its just a decoration in my coop. Maybe someone else's chicken would use them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hens love it I bought 2 of these nesting boxes over a month ago before my hens started laying. I had also placed other types of nest. in my hen house. My chickens just started laying 10 days ago and they only lay in the little giant nests. They totally ignore the other 3 nests. So I'm going back to Tractor Supply to buy 2 more since I have 14 chickens and they are waiting in line to use the 2 that I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nesting Boxes Very happy with these. The chickens can’t roost in them and they have acclimated to them nicely!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks small, but fits our largest hen This is the most popular nesting box in our coop! The hens like it better than our homemade boxes. There is always a lineup!
Date published: 2017-10-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Serves the purpose It took a while before my hens got accustomed to the boxes. It took moving them lower and putting a few hens inside the box before they got the hang of it. They are a little slippery inside if you use pine shavings. But they do serve the purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to install This was so much easier for me to install than building nest boxes, 4 nails and done! The girls approve.
Date published: 2017-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. My girls are using them already. You can't beat that for use. I also like the staggered mounting holes so you can share the same mounting stud.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick and easy Just put up yesterday and have 40 girls I thought would leave the other wooden nest to lay in these. Got plenty of eggs today but not one in these new plastic nest. I am sure in time the girls will use these. Ps, if I had gotten one egg in the plastic nest then I would have given 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plastic nesting boxes The best thing I ever bought for my chickens. I am very happy with those chicken nesting boxes and so are my chickens. Wonderful addition to their home! Thank you very much !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nesting Box I bought 3 of those Nesting boxes and my chickens love them so much that they fight over who goes in their first to lay an egg. I will be buying some more so they don't get so upset. I love them because they are very easy to clean and my chicken seem to feel very safe in them. I recommend them to everyone who has chickens. Trust me you won't regret buying them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed Durable. Easy to install and clean. I like the way they are designed - the location of the screw holes allows them to be mounted side by side almost flush. I was concerned at first that the birds would have a difficult time getting in because it seems they have to perch, then duck to get in. Most birds seem to navigate the way in fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome nesting box! This box is heavy duty and at the same time light and easy to install. I didn't want to have to go into the coop everyday to grab the eggs so I mounted this on the plywood interior, cut a hole in the wall, made a simple door and now reach right in and pick the eggs out each evening. No dirty shoes and the hens seem to enjoy it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its works as intended. Use one for couple years now and chickens use without hesitation. Bought a second last week as flock size is growing. Easy Install
Date published: 2016-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install, easy to clean I just got mine a week ago, I like that the chickens cannot roost on the top, open back construction so cleaning is easy, your able to remove clean and replace quickly. Larger than expected which was a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working out real well Easy to put up easy to take down and clean. Chickens must like them as they are laying eggs in them already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them!! East to clean!! My large Brahmas love them!! The perches on ours have been fine for over 2 years and I love the slot on the bottom in the back as it makes it much easier to clean them!! Great box for the price!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best nesting boxes and the chickens love them! The chickens love their nesting boxes. Boxes are easy to empty and clean. The hens hatch chicks in them. Large chickens do fit in the boxes Wyandottes, Buff Orpingtons, Delawares, Barred Rock, Rhode Island Red, Americana's... Don't hesitate in purchasing as they are great boxes to own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These boxes rock!!! I have 7 of these mounted and all are being used everyday. I am going to buy 5 or 6 more.
Date published: 2016-04-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great! I've had these for about two months. I bought them for temporary breeding pens for my Crested Cream Legbars. They seem to like them better than the nest boxes in the main coop. They don't have any problems getting in and out of them. I would buy these again.

I have 2 large, 12 pound Jersey Giant hens. Is this large enough to accomodate them?

Asked by: Karen R
The opening is 7 inches x 7 inches. I would imagine they could fit, 1 per box. You may want to measure, and make that decision.

how many boxes do you need for 7 chickens

Asked by: Sunnyboy
Each box can fit 1-2 chickens depending on their size. We recommend using your discretion when deciding on how many boxes would be appropriate for your chickens. However, if you are able to fit 2 in each of them, then 4 boxes would be the minimum you could get. The boxes are 16.5 inches long by 15.88 inches wide by 19.75 inches high, with an opening of 7 inches x 7 inches.
