You can be sure the box will be large enough for successful breeding and made with nontoxic materials to protect your birds when you build it yourself.

Drill a hole about 3 inches in diameter, 1 to 2 inches from the top of one of 12×12 pieces of plywood. This will be the front of your bird nest house design box. Drill a small hole to fit your dowel about 1 cm below the entry hole. Sandpaper entrance whole so that it is smooth. Cut one of 12×16 pieces of plywood at a 45 degree angle about 3 inches from the end, so you have two pieces, one that is 3 inches, and one that is 13 inches. This will be top of your nesting box. The angle of the cut allows the top to hinge open. Make sure the slope of the cut is down to 3 inch piece.
