  • Layer box for laying hens with a closable door open

Our nest boxes are built without dividers, this style has proven to accommodate more hens per unit size of box. Our four-foot nest box serves up to 45 hens, so the 812 shelter needs one, and two are required for the 1312 shelter. Our roll-out nest boxes s are a good insurance against hens pecking and eating eggs and may also help keep eggs cleaner as the hens cannot walk on the eggs. The eggs roll out of the nest area and forward under a cover at the front of the nest box where they are easily collected from by lifting the cover under the perch bar. These nest boxes are lined with a plastic nest padding material which can easily be removed and washed. The perch bar pivots up and locks in place for the night to prevent hens from roosting in the laying box and soiling the nesting area.

These nest boxes are built of light weight aluminum and collapse for shipping. There is a small amount of straight forward assembly required to set them up. The light weight aluminum construction also helps to reduce the weight of the entire shelter system for easy moving.

We put about 60-100 hens in a model 1312 shelter and move them twice a day. Model 812 does 25-40. The more you crowd them, the less pasture they get, so they’ll need more grain. If you put 100 in a 1312 you should definitely plan to move them twice a day.
