I was interested in building mallard hen boxes. I have seen how they make them and I would like to know when the hens lay there eggs. I have several ponds that I hunt and I would like to put hen boxes out so they will nest there. Have any of you guys done this before. Placing hen boxes where you hunt??

Wood Duck boxes and Mallard hen nests are 2 completly seperate types of structures.

Which are you after? I'll be posting up the instructions and the "how to" later this week when I get time.

Ive have made 4 wood duck boxes allready but I need to know also when do I need to have those out?? ALso I am wanting to build Hen boxes and Im not exactly sure on how you make those. I have a general Idea on how you make them. I have 7 ponds in one feild and ducks go to every one of them and I would like to place a hen box per pond or have 2 hen boxes per pond. THat would be alot of work building boxes. Then I have ponds in other feilds and today I counted 12 mallards on one pond which has 6 drakes and 6 hens and they were all paired up. I believe those are local ducks so I would like to get boxes out so they have babies in that area. Then when it comes winter the babies will hopefully return and bring there friends.
