EcoNest Colony Box
This simple, budget-friendly nesting box rolls eggs forward into a protective tray and prevents hens from soiling or eating eggs.
Good choice for those that collect eggs from within the coop and allow 24/hr access to nesting box.
California Residents: Proposition 65 Information
- Accommodates up to 45 hens (throughout the day, not all at once)
- One-way egg rollout tray. Lid flips up for quick egg access
- Durable, galvanized metal construction
- Sloped top prevents the hens from roosting
- Curtained nesting area for privacy and security

If segmented compartments (for shy birds) or a rear-mounted (outside the coop) egg collection tray are needed, look to the VersaNest™ Laying Box.

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.
