A photo of GaFarm Woman PamWho would have thought that a farm couple in rural Georgia would have an online chicken nest box business?

Not us, the rural farm couple.

(Here’s a photo of us.)

Pam and hubby

It all started with my blog. Life on a Southern Farm.

I had started blogging as a hobby, sharing our farm life through pictures, stories, recipes and things my husband builds. My husband loves to build things. Lots of things. Plus he is good at it.

I've been trying to find more of these boxes as I have been really happy with the one I have. Do you still carry them.

What an inspirational story of success, Pam. I don't keep chickens or plan to, but if I was, I'd definitely want a HenPals Chicken Nest Box for the feathered ones. Heck, if I was a chicken, I'd want one too! Enjoy the day. Cindy

I have the 3-hole bantam nest box from FarmMan for my Mille Fleur bantam cochins and I have to say that they are WONDERFUL! Lightweight, attractive, easy to install or move if need be. Of course, most important of all: my chickens love them! The attention to detail and quality of workmanship make these not only functional nest boxes but works of art!

Thanks Dave, husband just happens to make a live animal trap for mice and bigger critters too! I receive a lot of comments on my blog from people in not so rural areas. Some are able to keep chickens but some are not allowed. One even wrote about the police coming and taking her chickens while she was at work! That is why I am so very happy to live and work from the farm. I feel so blessed to be where I am and that my husband and I can make a living here.(We also hatch chickens and quails, to sell, in our big homemade walk in incubator)That will be another post soon. Thanks for the comment. Pam

Pam, your nest box story sounds a lot like the old saying, "If you build a better mouse trap, people will buy them." This is definitely a better nest box. It's still good to know that the American dream and still be found. If I was going to raise chickens I would definitely purchase them from you. I am not home enough to have animals. Living in urban USA deters the keeping of chicken in the backyards. Even if the city ordinances permit it, neighbors are not convinced it's a good idea. I'm just not the one to try to make them understand. I'm all for those that have the ambition to keep chickens.

Thank-you MountainWoman. I look forward to sending you nest boxes for your hens, too! Thank-you Hank. I appreciate the compliment. With the nest boxes shipped assembled(I think my husband does a wonderful job on them) we think they are a good buy, also! Pam

I love the story and those look like fantastic nest boxes ... the prices are really good too. Your prices plus shipping to Kansas are lower than many commercially available nest boxes list for! Thanks for the inspiration and the link to your store. Hank

Oh Pam, what an inspirational story! You and Farm Man should be really commended for your hard work and ingenuity. I can't wait to get my nest boxes this year and knowing the person who made them makes them even more special.
