    Gilbertson Nest Box

    We purchased this box because we were having trouble with house sparrows. Once we received the box, we immediately put it up and within a few hours the male and female bluebird had checked it out and started making a nest the next day! Checked the box today and there is one egg. We are so excited!

    Gilbertson bluebird nest box

    My experience was great! I highly recommend The Birdhouse Chick. They are knowledgeable, courteous and fast, answering all questions and providing extra information in the package which is very helpful. This bluebird box is so well made! I’m glad I found them and am definitely going to order from them again.

    Blue birds love it

    Very good, I now have 4 of them. Chickadees and blue birds are happy. Have never seen a HOSP attempt to nest in it.

    The birds love these houses!

    I have had one of these houses for about 15 years. The original roof (wood) decayed and my husband replaced it a few years ago. This spring, when I cleaned it out, the wood block that attaches the tube to the roof was decaying. I was concerned that the house might fall off with the weight of a bird family inside. Luckily, I found the Birdhouse Chick and ordered a new (and improved) house. The birds really like these houses and have nested in them every year. They are easy to clean and maintain. Birdhouse Chick sent my new one very quickly. I would recommend getting the poly roof to prevent decaying.
