Nest boxes

Is it ok to leave breeding boxes in cage all year round or should you just put it in before breeding season which method is better?

I leave my nest boxes in all year round. I do not have any issues when breeding season comes around. I also find in summer, some of my birds like to sit inside them during the heat of the day even though I have a spray system set up to help keep them cool.

I have a large nesting box which is cumbersome to get in and out for cleaning and today my Alex hen did not want me to put it back in but my conscience is pricked when l turn the heat off, as l think it is a place she could retreat to if she felt cold, and of course stay cool in the summer!
