    Does anyone have plans or ideas on builing a rollout nest box? Thanks

    Did you look in the coop design section of BYC?

    Basically, an exterior egg box with a sloped floor and a curtain or some sort of block to prevent the hen from reaching the egg after it rolls out.

    See up at the top, there, where there is a brown colored tab that says "Coops"? That will take you to pictures and building plans.
