There has been little choice of chicken nest boxes for the American Backyard and Free range farmer customer as the same few brands are offered by many online and retail stores. Our 10 hole roll out nest box from SKA, Italy is a perfect example of a superior product that until now was not available in the USA.
What makes our roll out nest box the best nest box on the market today:
Made with heavy gauge weather-proof zinc plated steel, the 10-hole will have the longest product life on the market, much longer than other metal and galvanized nesting boxes. Except for the plastic nest insert which is one molded piece of thick plastic the entire nest is constructed of the zinc plated metal. No plastic and no plastic moving parts

I ordered the 10 hole. It was easy to convert to rear rollaway. It does not come with the stand and that’s ok because I plan to set it on blocks. I wish the perches were not attached to the lids of the egg compartments, hopefully the company can go back to the original design where they were separated. This would make what I am trying to do a bit easier. I haven’t figured out what to do about the perches yet, but I’m sure I will. I didn’t realize it did not come with back walls either and saw in the manual that they are optional. After some DIY stuff for the perches and the backs, my rear rollaway design will be a dream come true. The current perch design and the “no backs” is not an issue at all if you plan to mount on a wall and have the eggs roll to the front. Just know that, with rear roll away, you will need to get a little creative. The unit as a whole is strong and downright gorgeous! I absolutely love it. I did use an air rivet gun to put the main box together. My box was not missing any parts. Customer service with this company has been fantastic! My questions were answered promptly and thoroughly.
I love it outside missing an arm to install the perch for the nest box.
Awesome looking once put together. Came with instructions for a 3 hole and a short video of the 10 hole but it had legs. Other than that, it is fairly simple to put together
