I read a few reviews about the chickens being able to see the eggs and still peck them. I spray painted the bottom of the clear cover so the hens cannot see the eggs. Took them a few days to get used to laying in the tray but now they are regulars.

It started with 1 chicken eating eggs. Soon she taught a bunch of them to eat them leaving me with only a few eggs left each day and a huge mess! I wasn't sure they would use them but they did right from day one and I haven't lost a single egg since! They fit well with my current boxes, I did ramp shavings up in the back corner of the current boxes before placing them in to make a wedge and encourage the eggs to roll down hill.

These inserts are a great idea, however, I wished they worked better in traditional wooden nesting boxes. These fit but are raised slightly out of the wooden box not allowing too much headroom for the hens to get comfortable. I was able to shimmy these into the wooden nesting boxes that came with my coop but I did have to add some small thin wooden supports underneath to secure it in place so the hens weight didn't shift it up so the eggs rolled back to where they could get them and eat them.
Overall, a reasonably priced item to curtail hens from eating eggs if you don't mind jimmy rigging it to fit traditional wooden nesting boxes to keep the eggs rolling in the right direction away from the hens.

Good product. Had to make adjustment so the eggs would roll down the tray.

This roll out nest tray with the flap is very good quality, however, I was disappointed to learn that the concave nest area is too small for my standard size Ameraucana hens, although it worked perfectly for my single bantam sized Silkie. The other downside to this nest tray is that my two egg eating hens were still able to reach into the covered tray to roll eggs out for eating. I do believe that if the concave nesting area were larger and the covered tray where the eggs collect was deeper that these improvements would make this the perfect rollaway tray. I was sad that this was not a solution for my coop, perhaps Premier 1 can improve upon this current design.
