RBC Metal Boot Nest Box
All metal nest boxes are NOT created equal.
Many on the market are made from dangerously high content zinc,
mainly the cheaper imported sheet metals used for heat duct works.
And now we find out that some on the market are made in China
Our Boxes are USA made.
Our metal boxes are made with our own design teams that have over 25 years experience in breeding exotics.
We know how to design boxes for certain species and we know what works and what does not.
Our boxes are manufactured by hand and incorporate every safety feature for nest boxes.
Our boxes are manufactured from USA graded sheet metal that is an alloy called galvalum, which has the lowest possible heavy metals when compared to the other boxes on the market.

No bedding is supplied or included, we suggest aspen bedding or aspen shavings, NOT PINE or CEDAR as these are aromatic oils and will eventually have problems with eggs. Research has shown that pine and cedar will kill early embryo development.
The boot is good when you do not want the birds jumping right on the eggs.
Some breeders think Birds needing more room and darker chamber benefit from the boot shaped box
Metal ladder extends from entry hole down to nest chamber.
These boxes designed to hang outside the cage with hanging s hooks.
Or can be bolted to cage(recommended)
Due to each breeders unique needs we cannot know everyones needs so it is up to the breeder how they will use the box and how they will attach the box, these boxes are designed to be hung outside the cage. The breeder must take some responsibility on how to hang and use the boxes as these boxes are designed to the industry standard for the pro breeder. we supply as courtesy s hooks if needed.
Metal boxes are more sanitary easy to clean than old wooden chewed boxes that have to be replaced most of the time right when the birds start nesting, actually delaying or stopping nesting activity.
Metal nest boxes are light weight compared to wood boxes of the same size and designs.
