There has been little choice of chicken nest boxes for the American Backyard and Free range farmer customer as the same few brands of products are offered by many online and retail stores. Our 6 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 6-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

If you plan to hang this on the wall with a forward mount roll out, it’s perfect! But I bought it specifically for the rear mount roll-out option listed in the description and pictured in the product photos. Unfortunately, it does not come with a rear cover in order mount it on the exterior of the coop. To accomplish this orientation, you will have to cut sheet metal and to cover the opening, and drill holes to attach it. For some, I’m sure this is not an issue, but for me, it’s an added expense and build time that I did not budget for.
At first when I opened the box it was daunting but after a few minutes reading the instructions everything was self explanatory.
As far as the nest box goes my hens started laying immediately and and have clean eggs all the time. There’s one or two that come with poo but Atleast they aren’t being pecked or eaten anymore!!!
Great product good quality. Fairly easy to put to get together. One thing that should be told upfront is that you will need a rivet gun in order to complete the assembly.
I was at first concerned about small bends and slight damage in shipping, but once riveted together and fully assembled (about a two hour job) I'm quite pleased with the end product, as are my chooks; most of them took to it the first day.
The design is well thought out. For the cost, an excellent product.
I have purchased one roll out nest box from Urban-Egg and love it and so do the chickens. I have also purchased another brand and I HATE it. Broke two of the liners when I put it together and only one of my chicken will lay in it when she has too. Decided to get rid of that one and get another one from Urban-Egg!!! And your customer service is great too!
