It was time to clean out the deep litter in the coop a couple days ago. So I got to clean out the nest boxes as well. Much like other wonderful people, I use pine shavings for bedding and nest boxes (by-product of planing pallet wood for other projects). The front of the nest box flips down for egg access and the birds normally get at it from the back side.
