Trying to come up with a way to collect eggs while away. Auto feeders and watering are already there.

How many birds?
How many nests do they use?
How long will you be away?


This is my favorite roll away nest insert. It's so easy to adapt any nest to a roll away.
I like that vid too, thinking of trying that version. Gotta wonder tho, when the hen steps on the basket part, does it tip?

I personally would let them build up, and get rid of them when I return, though if it isn't too warm the eggs may be fine. How many nestboxes?
We have 2 large nest boxes. I thought if they break, they would start eating them creating a whole new problem.
