Two hole rollaway nest for up to 10 layers. Rollaway Nests use no litter in the nest box. The specially shaped moulded plastic bowls encourage nesting behaviour. The Chicken enters the nest and proceeds to scratch out a new nestplace. The moulded mesh floor in the bowl cleans the birds feet, and the body warmth quickly heats the plastic of the bowl to ensure it remains dry and comfortable. The nests contain no loose parts to catch on the birds feet.
The eggs are laid and immediately roll away from the bird and under the egg cover. Clean, easy to maintain, with eggs safely away from the birds, avoiding losses due to breakage or the layers eating them. These nests can be fitted on the inside of the shed, or with a little additional ingenuity, on the outside of the shed with bird access through the wall. These nests are dispatched as a flat pack with the sheet metal, nest bowls, rivets, nuts and bolts. Nest box does not come with a reversing kit nor available (rollaway collection box is fixed and cannot be moved to the back or changed).
You will require a pop rivet gun and screwdriver for the assembly as it is mostly held together by rivets. The most efficient small producer or backyard chicken nest box we have ever seen. Less likely to harbour mites and lice like wood.
