When the chicken lays her eggs they roll down PVC coated heavy gauge 1/2” x 1/2” wire mesh floor to the front of the nesting box. To collect the eggs simply lift up the front cover and the eggs will be all lined up for a clean simple collection without having to disturb nesting hens.
Nesting boxes come with a training egg. These nesting boxes require no nesting material as it will inhibit the eggs from rolling forward. This makes these boxes easy to keep clean and reduces the risk of infestation. If needed, you can use regular amounts of nesting material and then gradually reduce as the chickens become trained.
Rollaway egg nesting boxes do not have plastic lids or trays to break as others on the market. They are made of heavy 26 and 16 gauge galvanized metal. The 26 gauge is used on the main horizontal structure and the 16 gauge is used for the vertical ends. Others on the market use thinner gauge metals.
Nesting boxes are simple to install and provide many superior benefits over wooden nesting boxes.
These nest boxes are easy to clean and sanitize. Boxes have metal mounting cleats, the cleats screw into a solid wall and the nesting box hangs on to the cleats. Simply lift off the complete nest box to remove and power wash and to disinfect.
One nest hole will handle 5-6 hens; four nests will generally provide a family with a generous supply of fresh eggs.
Nest holes are 8” tall 11-1/4” wide at the entrance point. Inside compartment measures 14" tall x 12" wide x 11-1/2” deep.
The eight compartment nest measures 48”wide 35” tall 17” deep.
Nesting boxes will be shipped flat and will need complete assembly using 3/16 and 1/4 bolts.
Nesting boxes are built in a small father and son Amish shop. Nesting boxes ship using an old fashion UPS Logbook. We will not have electronic tracking numbers. We will give you a general idea of the ship date and then you will just need to let us know if for some reason you don't receive the order within 10 days for us to manually have it tracked. This system has worked very well with hundreds of these nest boxes being shipped.
