Nest Boxes

We use several types of next boxes for our peafowl.  The first is a cut up 55 gallon plastic drum.  The drum is cut into thirds, discarding the middle section.  The top and the bottom are used for nest boxes.  the second type is a wooden corner box.  Click here to see our article about nest boxes.  Please see the pictures below.
