How are eggs collected from cage free hens commercially?

Thread Starter 

Where do commercial cage free hens lay their eggs/how are they harvested for sale?

Cage free doesn't mean free to roam, they are still confined usually to a building and they are provided nesting boxes with a floor that is slightly pitched backwards so the eggs roll to an opening in the back and onto a conveyor belt behind/under the nesting box that take them to an area where they are stored...
