Discover Australian Craftsmanship

Introducing the Dine-A-Chook Flat Pack Chicken Nesting Box, expertly designed for the Aussie backyard. Made with 12mm Hardwood Exterior Plywood, this box is a durable sanctuary for your hens. It supports Australian manufacturing with materials cut using an Australian-made Multicam CNC Router.

DIY Made Easy

Assembly is a breeze with our unique "Dog Bones" method. With screws, instructions, and minimal tools required, setting up your Hen Laying Box is straightforward, making it the perfect weekend project.

Innovative Features

The box measures 402mm in height, 300mm in width, and 309mm in depth. It features a sloped roof to deter perching and an optional Nesting Curtain for extra privacy (sold separately). Designed for easy egg collection and to maintain cleanliness, it's a must-have for any chicken keeper.


Though naturally beautiful, we recommend painting the Nesting Box with exterior-grade paint for weather exposure, ensuring it remains a secure and comfortable haven for years.

Transform your poultry care with the Flat Pack Chicken Nesting Box from Dine-A-Chook. It's more than a Nesting Box; it's a commitment to quality and Australian ingenuity.

Aussie Hen Haven Assembly Instructions

Nesting Box Assembly Instructions

Tools Required: A rubber or nylon mallet is needed. If using a regular hammer, proceed cautiously to avoid damaging the parts.

Step 1: Preparation

Begin by laying out all parts on a flat surface. You should have seven pieces in total, along with a bag containing 24 screws.

All Parts Laid Out

Step 2: Front Piece Assembly

Align the front piece with the base, ensuring the countersink holes face outward for a neat finish. Gently tap into place using a mallet.

Step 3: Sides Assembly

Attach the side pieces without forcing them. If you are having to force the parts together, stop, realign, and gently tap the pieces together. Start with the right side as shown.

Right Side Assembly

Once the right side is in place, follow the same steps for the left side.

Step 4: Back and Top Attachment

Now, attach the back piece first, followed by securing the top piece in place.
