Astroturf Poultry Pads are especially developed mat for 'colony style rollaway nests. The design of the "prongs" on this mat allows chooks to scratch around in natural nesting behaviour, cleaning the nest area and their feet in the process. The perforated base allows dust and small particles to fall through the mat, keeping the nest clean. Available by the metre, in 0.91 and 0.49 m widths. Different sizes rolls available to suit most roll away nests, and chicken nests in general. Genuine Astoturf is now being used to replace mats in a large range of nests including brands that initially did not use Astroturf.
