    For those of you with roll out egg nesting boxes, what do you use for nesting? I'm getting ready to build some and looking for flooring/nesting ideas. Was thinking maybe some of that green rug/turf stuff. Or pieces of rubber stall mats. Do you have mold/moisture issues?

    Thanks

    I never used any bedding, but a smooth mat would work, one piece of stray or a leaf or a feather or, or, or and the egg will not roll out. I just got tired of mine and made a good hay(not straw) bedding and rarely feel the need of needing a roll out----guess if you had egg eaters they would be nice. They do make a mat for roll out nest but I do not have time to google it for you. Good Luck
