Features of the Shenandoah nest
Hygiene in the nest and on the egg belt
close the nest before you switch the light off, using the Shenandoah opening and closing system. You can do this automatically by setting a timer yourself. This makes for a cleaner nest and eggs – results that boost performance.
the perforated plastic egg belt prevents infections from hazardous organisms, so the warm, fresh eggs cannot be contaminated.
Individual nest with two types of egg belts
- NEST WITH SIDE BELTS
an egg belt is situated on both sides of the nest. The automatic egg belt is easier to reach with your hand. If there’s a power cut, you can still collect the eggs manually.
- NEST WITH CENTRAL BELT
the egg belt is situated in the middle of the nest, with nesting space on both sides of the belt. This set-up is most suitable for the chickens’ natural nesting behavior. After an egg is laid, it rolls to the back of the egg belt on its own.
Save time collecting eggs
the system uses a central egg collection system and conveyor belts that intersect each other.
