The tough material has fibres which are shaped to assist protection of the egg. Secondly, the fibres will help hens to use the nest boxes, keeping the laying environment clean, hygienic and secure. The fact that these pads can be removed, cleaned and replaced makes them simple to maintain, and prevents the build up of dirt and dust which will soon start to harbour nasty parasites like red mites and lice.
Buyers should be aware that the nest pad is not suitable for use with nest bottom lids as this restricts the movement of the egg into the collection area.
Please note that the black plastic nest bottom is not included, but is available as Product 1219
