This may sound like a totally off the wall question — but can I use shower curtains as nesting box curtains??
With Spring coming, I’m looking to take down my old nesting box curtains and replace them with clean ones. Last year, I used a couple yards of cloth and stapled them over the nesting boxes to give shade/privacy so my Girls could do their thing. The downside is,. they roost above those boxes and when they poop, the cloth is sometimes in the line of fire. They’re filthy and gross and I want them GONE.
But my Girls still need a nice, quiet, shady place to lay their eggs. So I’m thinking — shower curtains? They’re sturdy, less prone to frayed threads, and if they get poop on them, I can take a spray bottle cleaner (or a vinegar/water mix) and a rag and clean them up.
BTW, this is what my old curtains looked like when they were new, and clean and not a poopy mess. I try not to take pictures of them now, because they are gross.
