Rollaway nest for up to 15 layers. These Rollaway Nests use no litter in the nest box. The specially shaped moulded plastic bowls encourage nesting behaviour. The chook enters the nest and proceeds to scratch out a 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 vice. These nests are designed to be fitted on the inside of the shed and are dispatched as a flat pack with the sheet metal, nest bowls, rivets, nuts and bolts. You will require a pop rivet gun and screwdriver for the assembly as it is mostly held together by rivets. 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).
Each nest opening is approximately 24cm x 19cm. Less likely to harbour mites and lice like wood. Dimensions: width 825mm, height 550mm and depth including rollout 550mm.
