Nesting box for the Tractor.

I had nesting boxes for the coop but not the tractor outside. I really had no clue what I was going to use. I wanted something weather resistant but practical and inexpensive. Then while I was looking at tractor designs I saw something that would be a perfect nesting box. A Rubbermaid container with a lid! We cut a hole on the side, inserted some straw and a golf ball. Why a golf ball? They make great, cheap, nesting eggs. We made this last night and put it, with the golf ball, inside the tractor this morning with the chickens. Voila!
