Product Description

MyCozyNest offers hens a comfortable and sheltered place to lay their eggs.

  • Safe and sheltered place to lay eggs
  • Minimum ingress of light
  • No draughts
  • High-quality impact-resistant & UV-resistant polypropylene
  • Simple to clean

The nest is produced mainly from high-quality impact-resistant polypropylene in trendy brown and lime green. The material and the shape make the nest easy to clean. The height of the edge and the shape of the nest make sure the hen cannot scratch the litter out of the nest.

The choice where a hen lays her eggs needs to meet a few conditions. The chicken’s natural instinct makes her find a place which meets these conditions. To just lay an egg somewhere in the coop is not an option, neither is outside. That’s why a hobbyist needs to create a place that meets the hen’s natural instinct. This place needs to be dark and sufficiently ventilated. This makes sure the animals will lay their eggs on the desired spot. MyCozyNest offers both aspects in exactly the right balance. The ventilation isn’t created through holes in the side walls, but via ventilation grilles with a minimum incidence of light. The ingress of light coming from the front is fixed by a blackout curtain made out of flexible plastic.

Designed by people with chickens

An easy to clean laying nest with a sturdy non-skid step. This way the birds can easily enter the nest. The nest’s topside is slightly rounded, so they cannot sit on top of it. And the height of the edge makes sure the hen cannot scratch the litter out of the nest. And when the nest does become dirty? The way of mounting the nest to the wall ensures it can be taken off very easily as well. Once taken off, one can simply spray it clean.

Which litter do I use?

This type of laying nest is the so-called ‘litter laying nest’. It’s the most natural type that is available today. The litter prevents the eggs from breaking or damaging. It also gives the animals a natural feeling. There various types of litter: wood shaving (not sawdust), buckwheat husks or chopped straw. We prefer the first two. Hay and long straw are not a good option, because the animals drag these outside the nest with their legs. The benefit of wood shaving and buckwheat husks is the eggs mix in between and are therefore protected against damage. In the unlikely event of no litter in the nest, the MyCozyNest’s inside material is soft enough to not break the egg.

Excellent quality at a very competitive price. One laying nest is sufficient for 5 hens. Someone who owns 20 hens will need 4 laying nests. It’s capacity and easy assembly make the MyCozyNest the ideal item for every hobbyist.

The MyCozyNest is supplied disassembled to save room for transport.
