“We have been using this brand of laying nest for two years. It was easy to assemble and the cleaning is a snap. I simply tip the floor and dump the shavings. It is secure for the chickens and they cannot tip the floor -that is not even a consideration. If a wash is needed it is easily done no scrubbing involved. There has been no wear and tear at all it looks as good as when first installed....” --ELauraD
