Nest Box Liner - Chicken Astroturf
Extra Performance Nest Pads
The Astroturf Nest Pad is made from a special polyethylene composition. The blades are tapered for better wear and resistance. The rounded tops contribute to the hens' comfort, help to ensure a better egg roll-off and reduce the number of feathers clinging to the shell. Astroturf is suitable for both backyard and commercial layers. The chestnut colour was selected after intensive research.
The advantage of using Nest Pads:
Fewer dirty shelled eggs, fewer cracks and breakages. The open structure of the new nest pad combined with the special shape and high flexibility of its individual blades ensures that the eggs roll away nicely when using a rollaway nest box system.
Fewer floor eggs Hens find nests fitted with Astroturf attractive. They seem to prefer Astroturf to any other material. As a result, the number of floor eggs is negligible.
Cheaper and more profitable Unhygienic litter is now a thing of the past, as is the intensive labour needed to keep replacing it. Astroturf lasts for several years.
Easy to install and maintain Astroturf is easy to cut to the right size. Once it is installed it needs little maintenance. The open structure enables more dirt to fall through and the new design prevents dirt from sticking to the nest pad. The mat is therefore very easy to clean.
