Wooden nest boxes are common, but they have the disadvantage of harbouring many cracks and crevices for red mites and bacteria to build up, live and breed. This means regular cleaning and disinfection is required to keep your stock laying. The Chickbox was designed and manufactured in Great Britain to offer clean hygienic alternatives to traditional nest boxes.

The Chickbox is a modular design that can be connected together to form versatile rows which you can adapt and alter to suit your requirements.

A number of chick boxes can be easily fixed to the wall of your hen house in single rows or in double rows. The chickbox is very easy to install and has been designed to be smooth on the inside with non reflective plastic and no corners to harbour red mite or bacteria build up.

The perch assembly slides out giving full access to change or clean the Chick Box fully. If you need to wash the inside of the chickbox, then the rack of nest boxes comes out easily from the chicken shed and can be jet washed or hosed down. This will save you hours of work and keep your flock healthy and productive.

The Chickbox system is a module and will retro fit into any shed configuration. In most cases you screw them to a length of wood (3" x 2" - 75-50mm) and hang them in a suitable position at approximately 600-800mm from the shed floor. They dovetail together so they can be double stacked or added to each other inline as your flock grows. A good ratio for use is six laying hens to each chickbox.

You can mix colours together, and this item is also supplied with a roll out nest bottom and a covering lid to keep eggs clean and safe.

Width: (widest part) 33cm, height 39cm, depth (perch folded up) 32cm, perch adds approx 24cm when folded down
