Van Gent Laying nests, for excellent technical results!

Roll away laying nests

The roll away laying nests from Van Gent belong to the newest generation of fully automatic housing for layers, layer breeders and broiler breeders.

The automatic roll away laying nests are a successful concept from years of practical experience. The structure of the laying nests are simple and stable, as well as easy to clean. Because of the design, they have an easy and modular assembly system. The nests are provided with an automated expulsion system which provides a safe and controlled manner of removing the birds from the nests.

Van Gent Standard

  • The entire laying nest is made of first class film faced plywood, ensuring easy cleaning and guaranties a long lifespan. The laying nest is characterized as user friendly and easy and quick to assemble.
  • The system is provided with a timeclock that activates the expulsion system. This removes the hens from the nests and closes them off at the end of the day, preventing broody hens and fouled nests, and benefiting with clean eggs. With the unique two part expulsion fence, the entire nest surface can be used which results in a familiar and comfortable place to lay eggs.
  • The open Astro-Turf mat ensures that the nests stay free of dust and foul. The comfortable climate of the nests provide the hens with the correct environment to lay their eggs.
  • The egg rolls off of the Astro-Turf mat onto the egg belt, the way that the egg travels here has been carefully designed to prevent cracks in the shells. The nest features two separate egg belts of 25cm, this makes the rolling away as short as possible and limits cracked shells to a minimum. The nests are available with woven or perforated egg belts.
  • The roof of the laying nest is partly hinged for nest inspection. Another portion of the roof can be lifted off for inspection of the egg belt.
  • The egg belt cover functions as a tunnel and prevents air drafts in the laying nest, as well as dust fouling the belt and eggs.

Van Gent Movable Floor

  • The laying nest with the movable floor is deep enough to accommodate a large number of hens.

This removes the hens from the nests and closes them off at the end of the day, preventing broody hens and fouled nests, and benefiting with clean eggs. The roll-away laying nest is equipped with rack and pinion system. The system operates as follows. The nest floor is lifted in two phases. During the first phase the floor is tilted backwards so that the last eggs roll onto the belt. Due to the controlled movement, the percentage of cracked eggs is very small. In the second phase the floor is moved forward, closing the nest. Possible dead birds are expelled from the nest.
