    Assuming we are talking about coturnix here - reading this forum, you will find some people have roll out trays for the eggs and some don't. So obviously you don't exactly need it. But if your birds accidentally crack an egg and develop a taste for the contents - then yes, you might need a roll out tray to avoid loosing too many eggs.
