Nest-O-Matic Roll-Away Laying Box



Nest-O-Matic Roll-Away Laying Box

The Nest-O-Matic is a comfortable and sheltered place for your hens to lay eggs. Eggs roll out by themselves into a covered tray, preventing them from being destroyed by the hens, or dirtied. This system ensures that all of your eggs can be collected quickly, easily and without hassle! 

Check out the advantages of Nest-O-Matic.

  • Discourage broodiness in hens, as there are no eggs to sit on, hens will be less likely to go clucky.
  • The roll out laying nest is supplied with a soft nest pad which is made of anti-bacterial polyethene.
  • The softness of the nest pad ensures a comfortable area for the hens to lay. As required, the pad simply lifts out to be washed, dried and returned to the nest for tomorrows eggs - thus keeping the nest clean, tidy and hygienic, giving your hens the ultimate comfort and with absolutely no hay, straw or shavings to bother with will reduce time spent cleaning your coop.
  • You will be collecting clean fresh eggs every day, no more soiled eggs to wash, especially during the wetter months.
  • The nest pad slopes down towards the collecting tray. The sloping floor can be set at three different angles where the eggs will naturally roll into the collecting tray where up to 12 eggs will be held at once.
  • The lid of the collecting tray hinges and gives you easy access to the eggs. The curtain on the laying nest ensures the hens can lay eggs in a dark and sheltered area, giving your hen the privacy some coops lack, which can cause hens to seek other places to lay.
  • The sloping roof of the Nest-O-Matic prevents the poultry from sitting on the laying nest thus keeping it tidy.
  • Multiple Nest-O-Matics can be attached to each other with the supplied mounting kit. This way you can connect several Nest-O-Matics to each other depending on your flock size!

The Nest-O-Matic is made of durable material. The plastic parts are made of UV resistant and high-quality ABS and the body is galvanised sheet metal with a minimum of 1 mm thick. The tray base and lid are made of tough, long-lasting ABS plastic.

Note: The Nest-O-Matic laying nest is delivered unassembled as a flat pack kitset. Assembly is easy and will only take minutes to assemble. Assembled size: 49cm length x 33cm width x 42.5cm high.

Roll Away Laying Box

Works really well with the chooks laying in the new box the day after it was put in the hen house.Just great.


I love the nesting boxes, but still need to convince my hens to use them...they lay under them and in front of them, but as yet won't go in. I have decided that patience is the name of the game, unless anyone has a better suggestion!!

Happy customer
