Cleaning soiled and dirty eggs can be extremely cumbersome for a larger flock of laying hens. The Economy 10 hole front roll-out nest box is an affordable option that provides the convenience of a front roll out collection box that helps prevent the eggs from becoming soiled before collection. Each box has a plastic flap covering the tray to keep the eggs clean until you are able to collect them.
The 10 hole roll-out nest box comes with metal nest bottoms that can be removed and cleaned easily. It’s also built with wooden perches that fold up for easier egg collection or to close off the nesting boxes at night. The fold up perches also prevent the hens from roosting over the egg collection box at night. The exterior panels of this 10 hole laying nest are made from galvanized steel. Each nesting box will hold approximately 12 eggs. We recommended having one nest box for every 3-5 laying hens.
Though assembly is required, this nesting box can be screwed together with common tools, and all hardware and installation instructions are included with the Nesting Box. This particular model of laying nest uses pop rivets construction, so please plan your equipment needs appropriately. You can purchase an affordable pop rivet gun to be shipped with the nest box. This is an excellent and affordable chicken nest box for the small farmer with a slightly larger flock who desires the convenience of a roll-out design. A pop rivet gun is required for assembly.
