mallard nesting cylinders

Postby carlschmarl2 » Mon Mar 13, 2006 8:28 pm

hey everyone...i would like to build some mallard nesting cylinders. i was wondering if anyone had any plans as to the construction of one and a list of materials that is involved in making one. also are the cylinders better or worse than boxes? we havent had much luck with boxes in the past and we are hoping to have better luck with the cylinders. thanks.

Hey carl. The Boxes are usually for wood ducks so that could attribute to you not bieng succesful.

Heres a good set of instructions from Delta Waterfowl.
