There has been little choice of chicken nest boxes for the American Backyard and Free-range farmer customers as the same few brands of products are offered by many online and retail stores. Our 3 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 3-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
Ease of use
The 3 hole roll away nest box makes the egg collection process much easier, cleaner, quicker and most importantly more productive. Our 3 hole roll away poultry nesting box will:
- Keep your eggs protected in a covered collection box
- Keeps eggs unbroken and clean - No trampled or half-eaten eggs
- Easy to clean with removable nests and trays - No nesting material such as hay or wood shavings needed making the nest box much cleaner and a money saver as well!
- Simple to sanitize to eliminate poultry mites and bacterial contamination such as salmonella
- Easy Grip PVC Perch
- Supports up to 15 laying hens
Unique and Innovative
The uniquely molded plastic chute for the Chicken Nest Box eliminates straw or bedding. The plastic chutes safely deliver the eggs into the collection box.

We found this through a number of searches and knew i was exactly what we needed, but then no-one had it in stock. We finally found it her on Urban Egg and got it right away. It's even better in person. Well-constructed, no sharp edges, and it will be easy to sterilize and maintain.
I like this product, but my chickens are still 50/50 on using it. I'll keep trying to get them to accept it. I did go out and buy a rivet tool to put it together, but they do send additional nuts and bolts to put it together, I just didn't understand what they were for.
I bought one of these as I had an egg eating problem and my eggs were very dirty. This solved both problems and my chickens love it. The eggs are clean and away from eating chickens. I like it so well I bought a second one. They are easy to assemble and light weight enough that even I can carry it. They are very sturdy and will last a very long time to come. I sat mine on cinder blocks and it works very well. I cannot tell you how happy I am with these nest's!! I highly recommend them to even small chicken owners!!
We had an egg eater problem in our flock. This absolutely solved our problem! Hens didn't mind switching over at all! Easy to install in our coop, it fit into our preexisting space for nests.
Quality equipment, wonderful working with the service from urban egg.
