Shipping Frequently Asked Questions

All orders are shipped and dispatched from our facility in Mount Barker, SA. Orders with items displayed as ‘in stock’ on our site are processed and shipped next day. With the Exclusion of weekends and public holidays.

We can only ship Small Accessories to PO Boxes, while larger items like Next Boxes and other accessories must be shipped to residential or commercial addresses due to their size. Unfortunately, we’re unable to accommodate custom delivery requests such as scheduling specific delivery dates and times, leaving the package in a particular location, or calling in advance or on arrival. These requests can only be accommodated if a customer organises freight collection and services themselves.

The packaging should ensure that the product arrives in brand-new, perfect condition. Nestyboxes takes great care to ensure that the product is dispatched from our facility in perfect condition. Even though we hope it won't, if an item is harmed in transit or a portion of your delivery is missing, kindly let us know as soon as you can after receiving your order by contacting us using the information on our Contact page.

When placing an order, you have the choice to select "authority to leave" during the checkout process (ATL). In this case, without a signature being required, our shipping carriers will leave the delivery at your unattended location. It's important to understand that this delivery method carries no guarantee against loss or damage, and neither NestyBoxes nor the shipping companies we work with cannot be held responsible for it.
It might not always be possible for the shipping carrier to leave a package with ATL instructions, though. This might happen, for example, if the delivery address is inside a secure building or complex and appropriate access to the address is not possible, or if there are insufficient instructions regarding where to leave the delivery.

All your questions answered

A standard nest box is designed to comfortably accommodate up to five hens. Its spacious dimensions provide ample room for hens to nest comfortably. In some cases, it might even accommodate two bantam chickens simultaneously if they're in a hurry to lay their eggs!

Cleaning your Nesty Box is a breeze thanks to its sleek, detachable design. We recommend a thorough cleaning once a month, which includes replacing the bedding. Here's how to do it:

1. Remove the Nesty Box from your coop.

2. Clean it using warm, soapy water, and rinse it off immediately.

3. For best results, allow the box to dry completely before reattaching it to your coop.

Regular cleaning ensures a comfortable and hygienic nesting environment for your chickens.

Nesty recommends using wood shavings or straw as bedding to create a comfortable and inviting environment for your hens to lay their eggs. However, the choice of bedding is not limited to these options, as many chicken keepers also use materials like hemp, hay, or shredded paper.

For those seeking a convenient bedding solution that reduces wastage, Nesty offers pre-packed wood shavings and chopped straw available for purchase on our website. These pre-packed, recyclable bags make it easy to provide just the right amount of bedding in a mess-free format each time you clean your nest box, ensuring a comfortable nesting experience for your hens.

Attaching your Nesty Box to your coop is a straightforward process. Here's how you can do it:

Locate the template outline of the hole required for attaching the Nesty Box on the packaging. This outline also indicates the holes you'll need to drill to attach the screws on your coop to hang the box.

Carefully cut out this outline from the packaging.

Hold the cut-out outline against your coop to ensure proper alignment and positioning for attachment.

Lost the packaging or need a new template? Don't worry, we provide a template outline for attaching your Nesty Box on our website. Simply visit our website to download and print the template for easy installation.

Getting your hens to embrace their new nest box may take a little time, as animals can be cautious about new additions to their environment. Here are some tips from Nesty to help you create an inviting nesting space:

Comfortable Bedding: Start by filling the nest box with straw, wood shavings, or other cozy bedding materials. This will provide a comfortable and inviting environment for your hens to lay their eggs.

Imitation Eggs: Consider adding golf balls or Nesty Ceramic Eggs to the nest box. Hens often imitate the behavior of others, so when they see these imitation eggs in the nest box, they'll think it's a preferred location for egg-laying. You can purchase Nesty Ceramic Eggs on our website.

With these simple steps, you can help your hens feel comfortable and confident in using their nest box for egg-laying.

To maintain the cleanliness and longevity of your Nesty Box, we suggest the following cleaning process:

Wash with Soapy Water: Start by cleaning your Nesty Box with warm, soapy water. Ensure thorough scrubbing to remove any dirt or residue.

Rinse Thoroughly: After cleaning, thoroughly rinse the box with clean water, making sure to remove all soap and debris.

Dry Completely: We strongly recommend allowing the box to dry completely before reattaching it to your coop. This step helps prevent moisture buildup and ensures a comfortable nesting environment for your hens.

Add Fresh Bedding: Once your Nesty Box is dry and ready to return to the coop, replenish it with fresh bedding material.

Nesty suggests cleaning your Nesty Box at least once a month to maximize its lifespan and maintain a hygienic nesting space for your chickens.

The Nesty Nestbox is constructed using refrigerated panels, which are inherently denser compared to the more common sheet metal used in traditional nest boxes. This difference in materials does result in a slightly increased weight. However, this weight brings several advantages for users:

Temperature Regulation: The added weight contributes to the box's excellent thermal properties. It provides a warm nesting environment for your hens in winter and a cool, comfortable spot during the summer months.

Durability: Unlike metal boxes that can rust over time, Nesty Nestboxes are rust-resistant, ensuring long-lasting performance.

While the Nesty Nestbox weighs less than seven kilograms, we recommend assessing the structural integrity and strength of your coop before hanging it. If you're uncertain about your coop's capacity, you can place the box on the ground or use Nesty legs, which are available for separate purchase, to raise and support the box securely. This ensures a safe and reliable nesting space for your chickens.

The Nesty Nestbox offers a variety of versatile options for positioning or hanging to suit your preferences and coop setup:

External Hanging: You can choose to hang the box on the outside of your coop, allowing convenient access to collected eggs without entering the yard. To implement this setup, you will need to cut a hole in your coop for the nest box.

Internal Hanging: Alternatively, you can purchase additional brackets to hang your box on the inside of the coop. This option is popular among those who prefer not to make any alterations to their coop structure. The nest box is hung on the side, ensuring that coop doors remain accessible. However, please note that the bracket screws may not allow for easy detachment.

Freestanding with Feet: For those concerned about the strength of their existing coop or simply looking for a hassle-free setup, you can purchase additional feet for your Nesty Nestbox. These legs make the box freestanding within the coop, elevating it off the ground. Attaching the legs is a straightforward process, and it ensures your box is stable and secure.

Ground Placement: The most straightforward option is to leave the box on the floor of the coop. Thanks to its durable design, the Nesty Nestbox can safely rest on the coop floor without suffering excessive wear and tear.

With these versatile options, you can choose the setup that best suits your coop and preferences while providing a comfortable nesting space for your hens.

The Nesty Nest Box is designed to be compatible with various coop materials, including metal, wood, UV-stabilized plastic, and steel. However, it's essential to assess your coop's construction thoroughly before hanging the box, as the weight of the Nesty Nest Box may impact the integrity of your coop. Here are some considerations and alternative options:

Assess Your Coop: Before installation, thoroughly inspect your coop's structure to ensure it can support the weight of the Nesty Nest Box without compromising its stability.

Lower Hanging: If you have concerns about the weight, consider hanging the box at a lower position within your coop.

Internal Bracket System: Utilize our internal bracket system, available for purchase separately, to hang the box securely on the inside of your coop. This option doesn't require any alterations to the coop's exterior.

Freestanding with Nesty Legs: Add Nesty legs, which can be purchased separately, to create a freestanding box within your coop. This option provides stability and eliminates the need for hanging.

Ground Placement: Alternatively, you can simply place the Nesty Nest Box on the ground of your coop. The box's durable design ensures it can withstand ground placement without excessive wear and tear.

If you remain uncertain about which installation method is best for your coop, don't hesitate to reach out to the Nesty team for expert guidance and support. We're here to assist you in providing a comfortable nesting space for your hens while ensuring the safety and integrity of your coop.

The Nesty Nest Box is delivered in a flat-packed, ready-to-assemble format. Building the box is a straightforward process that typically takes only a few minutes. It features a user-friendly design with a slot-and-key mechanism, making assembly a breeze. To assist you further, we provide comprehensive instructions and instructional videos to guide you through the process.

If you prefer not to assemble the box yourself, you have the option to visit one of our authorized stockists. They often have pre-assembled Nesty Nest Boxes available for purchase.
