It would probably be cheaper to build your own nest boxes. Some have used plastic cubes; others have used 5 gal buckets with the tops cut off. You can search the site and find some examples of home made nesting boxes. Otherwise, Rural King sells them for ~$15 each. For 30 hens, you would want 6-10 nesting boxes. I think the ratio is 1 nesting box for every 4-5 hens.

No clue on telling a rooster's age.
