Usually roll out nests are adopted by back yard chicken keepers due to an egg eating problem.Thank you so much for your time and patients!
Are you aware of any significant advantage to the roll-out style vs. traditional? Other than convenience and cool factor?
The touted advantage seems to be less dirt and damage to the eggs.
Does this hold up?
What is the linear ft recommendation for roosting space?
I have built a ladder with 1x4's and square dowel rods.
I have a couple that prefer the low hanging branches in the yard and the outside top of the hoop house coop.
I don't mind the branches but I need to figure out a way to keep them off of my hoop house.
Roost, or poop, boards.... go under roosts to collect night poops, and need to be cleaned regularly, so floor bedding lasts much longer and odors are much reduced in coop.Thank you.
Is that different than what I'm talking about?
