I read that it’s not a good place to put your nest box near your bird feeders, what would be the minimum distance away.
thank you in advance
I have had a Google and found this being asked before, it was suggested 10 feet but someone answered who had one, 7 feet away from feeders and they were being used. Keep a clear flight pathway to the boxes as well. If you go onto the RSPB main site and Google, nest boxes, feeding etc you will find lots of advice.

In reply to Robbo:
Just trying to help someone out Robbo and passed on what others had said that's all. Yes of course feed as far away from boxes, that point I did not make to ILR and should have.
I've re-read my post incase I got my wording wrong. Sorry if any offence was caused. I have to say my wording doesn't appear an issue IMO. If someone reads something and disagrees with it, they have a choice of saying nothing, or saying something along the lines of why they disagree with it. That is what I did. I accept you just passed on what you'd read and meant no more than to help 'i love robins'. However, as you proved, people search and find things on internet. If things go unchallenged, they can be seen as 'correct' or 'a good opinion'. If others disagree, they have to decide if it's worth giving an alternative.
