We have been trialling these for a while now in our Omlet Eglu Go and Go Up Chicken Coops and they work extremely well.
Thumbs up all round from both the hens and us! 👍🐔🥚 Lovely, clean eggs to collect each day. We have seen no broken eggs since using the chicken astroturf. Hens can sometimes kick the wood shavings out the bowl when fluffing around to lay. With the chicken astroturf, they cannot, so eggs are laid directly on top. Perfect! - to await your collection. 😊
Available in a single or twin pack with fixings.
The advantage of using Chicken Astroturf in your Eglu Go Chicken Coop:
This nest liner together with a fake egg finally convinced my chickens to actually lay their eggs in the Eglu nest box instead of on the floor, so I am very happy with the purchase. It is very easy to install. However, poo gets stuck in it every day (especially if one hen sits on the nest during the night) meaning it has to be removed daily, cleaned under the water hose, left to dry and then re-attached. It would be quicker to collect poo from a nest full of wood chips or hay, but my chickens didn't like that and just kicked it all around. Having 2 would definitely help with quicker cleaning.
A solution to my hens scratching out their nesting material. This is easily fastened in place. Had to sprinkle their accustomed shavings over the top for 1st days, but shook the Astroturf out and they have been very happy laying nice clean eggs since. As one hen goes broody frequently I put a ceramic caserole lid over the nest at night which also solved that problem. Hens love being shut in their Go these freezing winter nights.
Great idea, easy to clean and no need to have hay or sawdust on hand. Non messy too!
Good product and service
