Self-Sufficient Sustainable Living Backyard Chicken Roller Egg Nesting Box.  

This is our two compartment roller egg chicken nesting box. A four and eight compartment nesting box is also available.

Made from 26 ga and 16 ga high quality galvanized metal these nesting boxes are built using much thicker material than any other nesting boxes on the market.

No plastic parts either! nesting boxes built in an Amish metal shop, they are built to last! Read more below >


Rollaway egg nesting boxes are specially designed to allow eggs to roll forward into an upfront holding tray to keep them safe from chickens stepping on or pecking at them.

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 very little to 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 do, they are also 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 two compartment nest model measures 24-1/2”wide 20” tall 17” deep.

Nesting boxes will be shipped flat and will need complete assembly using 3/16 and 1/4 bolts.

We also carry the same nest in a 4 compartment model and a 8 compartment model

Impressed with the quality
Finally a high quality all steel roll away nest like in the old days. I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship and heavy gauge steel used in the nest. Everything assembled nicely. I would recommend this nest to anyone looking for a very nice nest box. Review by Jerry Liebl / (Posted on 2/29/2012)
