Had anyone successfully managed to adapt a cube to have a roll away egg tray? 

 

I have an egg eater....can't work out which one and has been going on for months now. Tried a whole host of things...nothing has worked . Was late collecting eggs today and 3 were gone. 

 

Wondering if there was a solution for the cube so once laid the hens can't get to the eggs. 

 

Thanks

Otherwise maybe close off the laying box in the cube and add laying boxes with the mechanism in the run.

Thanks Cat Tails! I have a 4m cube run then 9m squared low rise....so have been spending lots of my brain time thinking how I could do these easily....even thought about cutting holed in the run so the collection box could be outside!  🤔

 

Will take the tape measure out and see if I can adapt the cube nesting box in the first instance to have one or two of those nesting trays...

 

Thanks again for your time!

Please let me know how you get on - if your in the UK ebay has the roll away nest box for £17 - I used to have an egg eater but I have 4 old hens that rarely lay an egg so not such a problem at the moment but if I get new girls I think I might start with something like this if it works.
