Roll Away Nest Box?

This community style nest box with a slightly angled floor allows eggs to gently roll away from the hens reach to keep eggs clean and to reduce egg eating. Eggs are easily collected in the reversible covered egg tray. Hens share the chicken nesting area which measures 12 deep x 48 long. Our roll out nest boxes can be converted between rear roll out and front roll out. This simply means that you will have the ability to switch the covered egg tray to the front or the back at any time. Eye rings are attached to the two top corners of the box and can be used to mount the box onto a wall. One brown nest pad is included with each nest box. Order an additional nest pad for the convenience of rotating nest pads as one is being washed. Accommodates up to 45 hens.

Should you take old nest out of bird box?

We recommend that old nests be removed in the autumn, from September onwards once the birds have stopped using the box. Use boiling water to kill any remaining parasites, and let the box dry out thoroughly before replacing the lid. Insecticides and flea powders must not be used.

Why do nesting boxes have to be off the ground?

Your nesting boxes should be positioned up off the ground at least a few inches to provide the laying hens with some privacy and to keep other birds from scratching around the eggs, potentially stepping on them and breaking them. … Hens may lay anywhere, even in an old sack of bedding!

There has been little choice of chicken nest boxes for the American Backyard and Free range farmer customer as the same few brands of products are offered by many online and retail stores. Our 6 hole roll out nest box from SKA, Italy is a perfect example of a superior product that until now was not available in the USA.

My only complaint so far is the option to move the egg collector box to the back of the unit. I have no feedback on the egg collection or how the hens like it since mine have not yet moved to their new homes but will add to this review once they have settled in.

Im local and Kevin delivered it to my house in a few days and showed me how to set up the boxes. At first when I opened the box it was daunting but after a few minutes reading the instructions everything was self explanatory. As far as the nest box goes my hens started laying immediately and and have clean eggs all the time.

One thing that should be told upfront is that you will need a rivet gun in order to complete the assembly.
