What is a rollaway nesting box?
A rollaway nest box is a type of nesting box designed for poultry, such as chickens. It is a specialized enclosure where hens can lay their eggs. The distinctive feature of a rollaway nest box is that it has a sloped or slanted floor with a gentle incline. This design allows freshly laid eggs to roll away from the nesting area, making it easier for the farmer or poultry keeper to collect them without disturbing the hens.
The main benefits of rollaway nest boxes include:
1. Cleaner Eggs: Because the eggs roll away from the nesting area, they are less likely to come into contact with droppings or other contaminants, resulting in cleaner eggs.
2. Reduced Egg Eating: In traditional nesting boxes with flat floors, some hens may develop a habit of pecking at eggs, which can lead to egg-eating. The sloped floor of a rollaway nest box discourages this behaviour.
3. Ease of Collection: Eggs are conveniently collected from a separate compartment, often located outside of the coop or easily accessible from a collection area. This reduces the need to enter the coop and disturb the hens.
4. Improved Hygiene: Rollaway nest boxes can contribute to a cleaner and more sanitary nesting area, as eggs are less likely to accumulate in the nest and become soiled.
5. Less Risk of Broken Eggs: Because the eggs are collected promptly, there is a lower risk of them getting broken or damaged by other hens or environmental factors.
