    Does anyone have kuhl roll-out nests with the removable one piece plastic bottom? Would like to know how the plastic bottom is constructed, and maybe see a side view of the bottoms because I would like to convert a regular nest to roll-out. Kuhl says that they are for replacement or for conversion, but when I asked them they said they were for kuhl nests only. It looks like they might be able to fit into an existing nest making it a roll-out.

    Are they like a sliding drawer? And what is the purpose? I'm thinking something could be made with some regular cabinet drawer slides.

    They are bottoms that make a nest a roll out nest for the eggs to roll out. They can be viewed at www.kuhlcorp.com, refer to item number PRO-10. I would like to get a closer look at one to see if they can adapt a regular nest to be a roll out nest, and since the units are a little expensive and you have to order 10, I want to make sure they will work before I buy. If anyone has tried this it would be very helpful.
