Perfect incidence of light & no draft
The place a hen lays her eggs needs to meet a few conditions. The chicken’s natural instinct makes her find a place which meets these conditions. To just lay an egg somewhere in the coop is not an option, neither is outside. That’s why a hobbyist needs to create a place that meets the hen’s natural instinct. This place needs to be dark and sufficiently ventilated. This makes sure the animals will lay their eggs on the desired spot. MyCozyNest offers both aspects in exactly the right balance and therefore deals with a stubborn designer error in many other laying nests. The ventilation isn’t created through holes in the side walls, but via ventilation grilles with a minimum incidence of light. The incidence of light coming from the front is fixed by a blackout curtain made out of flexible plastic.
Pleasing to the eye
Animals lovers often enjoy the looks of the animals they take care of. Unfortunately, the products they use to give that care mostly don’t look as good. For decades that has been the case for laying nests. The MyCozyNest ends that problem with it’s innovative design, happy shapes and trendy colours brown and lime green. This nest is the perfect new asset for everyone with chickens!
MyCozyNest stands for a comfortable place for chickens of every breed and size. The blackout curtain and the innovatie ventilation grilles provide the necessary dark and sheltered place to lay eggs. Due to the use of high quality impact-resistant polypropylene this product offers een excellent lifespan. In addition, the shape of the nest makes it very easy to clean.
Designed by people with chickens
Despite the good looks, a product needs to be functional first and foremost. Olba believes in the combination of those two. That’s why some of our people have chickens themselves. That way we know what we talk about and what truly matters.
An easy to clean laying nest is one of those things. The MyCozyNest is provided with a sturdy non-skid step. This way the animals can easily enter the nest. The nest’s topside is slightly rounded, so the animals cannot sit on top of it. And the height of the edge makes sure the hen cannot scratch the litter out of the nest. And when the nest does become dirty? The way of mounting the nest to the wall ensures it can be taken off very easily as well. Once taken off, one can simply spray it clean.
Which litter do I use?
This type of laying nest is the so-called ‘litter laying nest’. It’s the most natural type that is available today. The litter prevents the eggs from breaking or damaging. It also gives the animals a natural feeling. There various types of litter: wood shaving (no sawdust), buckwheat husks or chopped straw. We prefer the first two. Hay and long straw are not an option, because the animals drag these outside the nest with their legs. The benefit of wood shaving and buckwheat husks is the eggs mix in between and are therefore protected against damages. In the unlikely event of no litter in the nest, the MyCozyNest’s inside material is soft enough to not break the egg.
