Chicken Nesting Box Curtains Project

This easy step by step tutorial of how to make chicken nesting box curtains project encourage hens to lay eggs and to stay warm.

Hens prefer a dark private nesting box to lay their eggs and because of the scope of chicken eyesight they may actually recognize their own nesting box. Nesting box curtains may actually help keep the area warmer by blocking wind drafts during the colder months of the year.  Hens work really hard with their body’s heat to keep their eggs from freezing.

Your nesting box curtains do not have to be fancy because the chickens will get them dirty anyway. It is such an easy project that you really only need a staple gun, fabric, pair of scissors  and a measuring tape. How many times have you seen bright patterned material being sold for pennies on the dollar at a yard sale ?  Snap (buy)  it up with a smile !
