Van Gent automatic roll-away laying nests and slatted floors are produced in Holland. Poultryhouses can be equipped (laying nests and slatted floors) for both breeders and layers.The automatic roll-away nest is the result of years of practical experience with Van Gent laying nests. The construction is simple and stable as a result of wich the nests can be assembled more easily. The expulsion system makes it possible to remove the hens periodically from the nests.
