Front Roll Out Nest - 4 Hole

Product No. ROLL4

Details

This is the four hole front roll out nest. These nest boxes roll the eggs out the front of the nest preventing them from getting dirty or soiled by the hens. The egg compartments are covered by a plastic flap to keep them clean until collection. Side Panels and perch brackets are galvanized; top, front and back partitions are plastic. Comes with removable plastic roll out nest bottoms for easy cleaning. Perches flip up for egg collection and to close off the nest boxes at night if necessary. The egg storage compartment is underneath the perch. Front opening is 7" x 11 1/2". Each compartment holds up to 12 eggs. This model uses nuts and bolts for construction. Experts recommend one nest box for each 4 laying hens.

I ordered this in because it looked like a pretty well made box. I liked what appeared to be a clear lid over the eggs do I didn't have to open each and look inside. It turns out that this is just a poorly attached piece of flexible plastic. I expect it to last a month or so and require frequent maintenance. Assembly took a while because the instructions were poor and everything was flathead screws (!!) so I didn't use my impact driver. Overall, for the price I expected better quality and better instructions.

Owner Response: I can see from your perspective that this product may look like it was constructed poorly. However we have had the larger roll out nest in the test coop since 2016. It has worked great ever since the plastic flaps have held up to daily use and many cleanings. They use flexible plastic in these because the hard plastic covers can get brittle and break in the cold weather. However these do not. So while I do understand that on first look it may to appear to have been not thought out I can assure you these nests are built to last. Give it a try in your coop and I think you will be happy with the long term results. I will talk to the manufacturer about the flat head screws. Those are just an annoyance when putting anything together the larger nests do have rivets which are very easy to apply. Thank you for your order and the review. We try to take each review seriously.
