Not happy with my purchase, cheap and doesn’t fit well together. I should of bought the more expensive version. Box came smashed and beat up.

I recently bought two of these for my laying flock’s winter housing, and so far I’m delighted.
This is a budget option, so it’s perhaps not perfect, but at about *half* the cost of the alternative I think it was well worth a bit of hassle and some rough edges for the amount of savings.
It does take some work to interpret the word-free assembly instructions, but I put the first one together in about an hour, and (once I knew the process) the second one was really easy to build - maybe 15 minutes.
A friend who has them suggested drilling a hole in the bottom of the egg collection area to allow for future rinsing in the event of an egg break - this seems like a good idea.
As noted in a different review, the lid of the collection area flips inward not outward. It’s a bummer, but I find it’s easy to scrape any droppings off the top of the of the lid with a block of wood before opening.
My birds immediately figured out how to use these.
You get what you pay for, but bottom line I’m glad I saved the hundreds of dollars that the fancier nest box might have cost.

Having hens that constantly fight over who gets what nest box makes this thing amazing. Now they can pile in and no eggs are getting squished thanks to the roll out feature! Wish I had purchased it sooner!

We love them!!! They arrived in a timely manner and were easy to assemble. We have 5 coops and these will be wonderful.

I have 2 Best Nest rollaway nests I have had for several years now. I needed another one. I decided to try this Econest. I have always trusted Premier to offer the best in products.
This is not one of them. It is not built as sturdy as Best Nest and the instructions are picture only. The worst part is the top of the egg collection area. If your chickens like to climb on everything and leave droppings, then when you open the top it flips inward, not outward and down like BestNest, and any droppings you didn't clean off beforehand get flipped onto the nest "carpet". Spend the extra and get the Best Nest.
