Egg Handling Supplies
Enhance Egg Appeal…
- Keep them clean. How?
- Use roll-away trays in nest boxes. (Egg rolls out of nest into the tray when hen leaves.) Some chickens insist on nests with bedding but over time most of them will switch.
- Collect the eggs once or twice daily.
- Keep broody hens out of the nests.
- Provide a calcium supplement for the hens. We use oyster shell in a grit station.
