For more and more people wanting to live a healthy, self-sufficient lifestyle raising a few hens and collecting eggs from their own backyard is the best way of providing the most locally available and freshest food for their table. It’s about stewardship, sustainability and a better quality of life. Fowl Stuff offers high quality nest boxes without high prices that are the perfect solution to providing ideal nesting facilities for urban and rural chickens in coops and tractors (aka arks in the UK). These nest boxes were designed by a chicken farmer with many decades of time spent with the birds and understanding both what hens want in a nest box and what is best for the hens. Every detail concerning the Fowl Stuff nest box was designed the way it was for a purpose and reevaluated over and over before a mold was made to produce the parts. The Fowl Stuff nest box is perhaps the least expensive one on the market, but at the same time it is the best!
FSNB11 - Fowl Stuff™ Nest Box complete with Box, Cover, Perch, Fasteners & Instructions.
The single hole nest box securely fastens to a wooden wall using screws and fender washers supplied with this “complete” heavy-duty unit. No additional bracing or supports are required or recommended. The 6” opening in the cover is large enough for most chickens and it may be increased to 8” for heavy breeds, if needed. The 5 gallon pails are available in black or white. In some climates vent holes may be beneficial. They can be added as needed. There is also an alternate installation plan that allows for vent holes in the back. See the FAQ and Instructions pages for more details. Assembled units are 20.25” x 12.5” x 12.5”.
FSCP11 - Fowl Stuff™ Nest Box Cover & Perch with Hardware and Instructions only:
Fowl Stuff nest box Covers & Perches are now offered in yellow or white. They fit many 3 ½ and 5 gallon pails, but not all. If you are buying the Cover & Perch to use with your pail, please take the cover with you to the store and check to see if it fits the pail before buying the pail. Instructions come with the Covers & Perches, along with the mounting hardware/fasteners so all you need is the pail. Each packet of hardware includes (4) screws, (4) fender washers and (1) zip tie. Note the hardware packets for the Tractor nest boxes, below, contain different hardware.
Note: Premium Fowl Stuff nest boxes are 90 MIL polypropylene plastic injection molded pails/buckets for maximum strength and durability. Our 5 gallon pails come in black without the Fowl Stuff logo, black with the logo in white/gray and white with the logo. Our 3.5 gallon pails only come in white without a logo.
70 – 75 MIL economy plastic pails found in most stores may be OK, but are not necessarily recommended.

FSTB11 - Fowl Stuff™ Chicken Tractor Nest Box complete – no longer available.
With the chicken tractor nest box you can collect eggs from outside. Mount it thru the wall of a chicken tractor or coop and you’ll be able to collect eggs from outside thru a large 6 5/8” diameter access hole. A tapered yellow plug fits snug into the hole keeping the rain and wind out, making this the most weathertight chicken tractor nest box available. The plugs can crack over time and replacement plugs may be ordered from MOCAP (TAPERED WIDE FLANGE PLUGS LDPE YELLOW part # TWF6.61/6.68YW1). A spare/backup plug is now included with each new unit sold. The nest box (pail) has UV protectant incorporated into the plastic to offer extra protection from the sun’s rays, but it is best to keep the nest boxes shaded to reduce the amount of sunlight penetrating thru the box and to keep the nest boxes cooler. All the necessary hardware and instructions are included.
FSBB11 - Fowl Stuff™ Bantam Chicken Nest Box complete
This unit is the same as the original FSNB11, except with a smaller box (pail). These 3 ½ gallon boxes are 3 ½” shorter than the 5 gallon boxes and don’t have the “Fowl Stuff” logo printed on them. Because of many requests for a smaller nest box to better fit bantam chickens and pigeons we have made the Bantam Boxes available. They can also be modified into “Tractor” boxes (as above) by special order and sell for the same price as the 5 gallon units. All the necessary hardware and instructions are included.
