    This looks like a cool design. I looked at the link to the prints and realized that there were two ramps for the eggs. Was this part of Opa's design and I just missed it? Is this an improvement that you have tested?

    I hope you do more things like this for the best-of-breed designs floating around BYC. Thanks!

    No this isn't part of Opa's design his has one ramp going to the back. I will be building a prototype in the next week to fully test the design, I'm currently in the procces of sourcing out the soft ramp covering - Opa's nest mats look like they would work quite well ... hum.

    I updated the prints to show some instructions as to changing the # of boxes. I also renumbered some of the item numbers to keep things clearer.
