The nests for reproductive laying purposes and standard laying offer improved comfort conditions to hens and are complemented with an automatic conveyor belt for eggs collection.
The design and great quality during the nest manufacture, assures clean eggs, minimum breakage and also preventing “off the nest” laying.
Main advantages of the nests with conveyor belt for eggs are:
-Reduced number of eggs laid on the floor.
-High hygiene conditions.
-Savings in labor.
Each nest has a bottom surface manufactured in galvanized steel covered by an “artificial turf” composed by synthetic materials similar to a natural nest bed. Both parts can be dismounted from the nest without any difficulty for its cleaning.
The plastic sheeting barriers next to the artificial turf level, hide the egg and reduce losses from pecking.
Bird comfort is doubly improved:
-The curtains which close partially at the entrance of the house provide an inviting interior atmosphere.
-The nest ceiling openings guarantee an effective ventilation.
The nests are equipped with an automatic expulsion system avoiding a prolonged permanence of the hens for laying.
The belt velocity for eggs recovery can be adjusted in accordance to eggs number.
The central or lateral conveyor belts (according to the model) will pass the eggs to the storage area, and from there, through a conveyor belt network to the main recollection warehouse.
The nest includes an adjustable frame mounting which allow different plastic floor configurations.
