I had tried 2 homemade nest box design concepts (1-plywood & 1-bucket) before deciding to buy these. Wish I would have gotten them from day 1!
The nest boxes seem to be very durable and are very easy to clean. I was surprised at how think the plastic is.
The egg trays are what really make the product great. The slope is just right and the little trays allow me to not be worried about checking for eggs so often during the day. The tray has fold up flaps that catch on the removable front ledge to ensure that the tray doesn't slide out.
I find that the eggs remain cleaner and are less likely to get cracked, pecked or broken.
If you have an egg eater in your flock these wont guarantee it will never happen again but the chances are greatly reduced.
Although they are expensive I would say that they are definitely worth the cost. You won't be disappointed.

We now have six boxes - they work great - easy to clean, easy to close, clean eggs, durable - will get more should there be a need -

I was a little skeptical when I first received the Chick Box. However, after a couple of days, most of the hens accepted them. One or two chose to lay on the floor instead. I am a little concerned about how well they will stand the test of time without cracking along the back where they are attached.

I purchased two of these and have been using them for a week. I have 12 hens and they took to them right away. I purchased them due to an egg eating problem. There is still an occasional eaten egg. I have seen eggs that don't roll into the tray right away so they must be able to get to some of them. The vast majority of the eggs are in the trays and very clean when I collect them after getting home from work. I really like the fold up perch that keeps the hens from roosting in them at night. This is a well designed and well constructed product. I am planning to buy more for the moveable pen I used in the summer.

I had canibal hens so i gave this tray a try. From day one it has worked perfectly. I now have 6 clean unbroken eggs every day. I just dropped this tray in my existing laying box and put one screw in the top to keep it from moving. Fixied my problem from day one.
