The VAL-CO Colony Nest is designed to cater to the concept of the birds being more comfortable going into a more open nest to lay eggs. The larger nest holes are more inviting for the birds. The nest pads are comfortable and inviting to the hens, which helps prevent floor eggs, and leads to greater output of high-quality eggs, while the ventilation holes in the partitions help provide an ideal environment.
