Wildlife Feeding Gifts: When you send bird feeders you send two gifts: the feeders themselves, and the moment they arrive. There's the knock at the door or the package on the porch. And the next thing that happens is your special someone's heart races with delight as they open a gift they will remember for years to come.

Feeder Delivery: At Hurley-Byrd, we do it differently and oversee every part of the process: from the buying of raw materials, to handcrafting the feeder, to the day your purchase arrives at the front door. We send freshly crafted feeders direct and bypass all the middlemen, which means better feeders and a better value. (Don't just take our word for it. Thousands of customers rate Hurley-Byrd "best value.") We believe in complete satisfaction and lasting value, too, which is why we guarantee a perfect feeder for you or your recipient , and also that your feeders will outlast all others available and will be enjoyed from the moment they arrive and for years to come. It's how Hurley-Byrd is changing how America feeds their wildlife.

Hurley-Byrd does it differently: We handcraft every feeder we sell. Beginning with our own designs, buying the finest western red cedar and crafting your feeders
to near perfection with a beautiful penetrating oil finish so they last for years. We take pride in every step of our service, too. From the moment you first interact with us, whether on our website or on the phone, to the delivery of your feeders and gifts and everything in between. We want to make owning and gift giving easy for you. So whether it's a simple thank you, a unique deer feeder or a whole feeding station for yourself, choose Hurley-Byrd and see what a difference our feeders really make.

Duck Nesting Boxes - Offer While Quantities Last
Designed by Ducks Unlimited - Built Hurley-Byrd Tough
Ultra Limited Offering
We've built Duck Nesting Boxes over the years and always at our customer's request..... and this run is no different. Dan R. of MN contacted us the other day and requested a set of boxes for his wild ducks. So, we are offering them to all our previous customers and newsletter subscribers onlyThis IS NOT a public offering.

Hurley-Byrd DOES NOT design nesting boxes. Why?
We are not the authority on nesting box requirements, which are very specific. We leave that to the
professionals in their field. In this case, Ducks Unlimited specifies the dimensions and we built the perfect box.

What does Hurley-Byrd do? We do what we do best.... build them like no other.
Each box is handcrafted with our heavy duty premium grade western red cedar in a full 1" of thickness.
Each box is then assembled with some seriously gnarly screws holding it all together for years (decades?) of use.

We then add various craftsmanship functions to further step up box.
Each Duck Nesting Box includes oval entrance holes instead of inferior rounds. - Ovals are all hand cut.
Deep cut Duckling Ladders under the entrance holes (exit for ducklings). Makes getting out easier.
Full swing open side door for cleaning and maintenance.
Three swing out door closure points allowing various installations. One point from the front,
one from the back and one from the side itself. Use one or all three to secure the door closed.

These boxes will stand up to the test of time, which is ultra important for nesting boxes.
The longer a nesting box can stay put and age, the better. We have found over the years an aged box
will far outperform a new box. Think like a parenting bird for a moment. They seek the best protection for
their young. A nice new shiny box looks great on a store shelf but a mother bird will fly right past.
An aged box melds into the surroundings and is less likely to attract predators.

BUT, there are a few things a craftsman can do to assist in getting the box occupied.
Once built, each of our boxes is hand sanded to break any shiny glare which
produces a box which is already melding with its environment. Only age will add he right colors.
We also hand sand all the hard edges and roll them over hard into a large radius. This does two things.
One: Helps delay decay which always starts at the sharpest, thinnest edge. We want the box to age, not rot.
A rolled edge will shed water better and allow the box to last longer.
Two: And most importantly, breaks the visual (unnatural) sharp edge. Birds do everything by sight.
When your prospective parent views the box, there will be less striking characteristic to the box,
hence they are more likely to accept it as their new "hidden" home for the babies.
Purchase Option One - Shipped Fully Assembled (less the roof.) Six Screws Attach the Roof:

We build each box fully then disassemble and mark each piece, screw hole, etc.... alpha numerically.
Reassembly will be simple and straight forward. When you have completed the assembly, the box will be
strong and sturdy, probably a bit more so than fully assembled boxes since they did not get
jostled around through the shipping and handling process.

Why Sand Them So Well?

The box on the left is
unsanded and shows how the
fresh, new lumber shines. The box
on right has been sanded hard
removing the shine and making
the box less conspicuous. We
feel the dull appearance will be
 more welcoming to parent
Ducks as they search for a
hidden nesting location.

We believe this will help put your box
into use sooner than simply letting it
age for a year or two.
Hence, you will have baby ducks sooner.
HUGE Door for Easier Cleaning and Maintenance. Deep Cut Baby Duckling Ladder.

Obviously, nesting boxes need to be opened for cleaning, maintenance and to check to see who's there.
Each Hurley-Byrd Duck Nesting Box has a HUGE swing up door allowing you to clean and care for the box as
needed. Please DO sterilize the boxes each winter before your ducks arrive. The door can be secured
from three different point. Either from the front, back and side or any combination of all three.
The appropriate screws will be supplied.

All Duck Boxes need a means for the duckling to climb out when the time comes.
Some boxes have screens (poor choice as they fry in time), some use plastic netting (HORRID idea as the
netting can entangle baby feet and beaks. Some simply scratch the inside of the boxes front board.
Works but does not meet HB standards.

Hurley-Byrd has developed a means of cutting deep horizontal slots into the board as shown below.
The slots do not extend to the board's edge, which would allow insects and drafty winds into the box.
Only a shop with our craftsmanship skills can pull this off safely.
Okay, so it's not all that safe but we know what we're doing.
Drain Holes and Roof Overhang?

Direct from Ducks Unlimited duck box plans.
Obviously, each box needs a means of draining any water that may blow into the entrance hole. 
We have predrilled the holes per Ducks Unlimited plans.

Roof overhand is also directly from Ducks Unlimited plans. The overhang should not be too long to impede parent ducks from entering and not too short as this will allow wind blown rains/snow into the box.

Base plate drain holes.
Not a very good photo but there are four holes, one in each corner plus a fifth in the very center.
Perfectly sized roof overhang.
Direct from Ducks Unlimited plans.
