Community style nest with more laying space for your hens

Relax is a group laying nest designed especially for broiler breeders. It has proven to provide birds with a better laying environment around the world.

The nest provides space for 220-240 birds per nest section, so your birds won’t fight for nest space. The back wall automatically closes the nest after the laying period, ensuring that the nest remains clean and that the hens do not brood there. The almost screwless, snap-on system allows for quick and easy assembly.
