Koozii: New Community Nest from Roxell13 September 2012
BELGIUM - Koozii™ is Roxell’s new automatic nest for broiler breeders and commercial layers.
Koozii is especially developed for the production of super quality hatching or table eggs. The community nest was therefore built around the optimized comfort and welfare of the hens.
The nest boxes are spacious and oxygen rich for a maximum acceptance by the birds. A special positioning of the slats at the entrance avoids accumulation of manure in front of the nest. A wood protection on the entrance board excludes leg and breast injuries. The expulsion of the birds happens extremely gentle.
For broiler breeders this done through a movable back, while for layers the farmers can choose between a movable back or a tilting floor. The transportation of the hatching or table eggs to the collection table is done with the greatest care. The AstroTurf pads in the nest prevent hair cracks and soiled eggs.
The perforated egg belt not only optimizes the climate in the egg channel it also holds the eggs in place so that they don’t bump into each other. The eggs reach the collecting table or the cross conveyor through a smooth and open transition where dirt, feathers and soft shell eggs are removed. Koozii has a wide roof lid and a removable back panel for control and easy cleaning.
The nest fronts can be opened simultaneously per row by automatic or manual winching of the nest curtains for an optimal and fast inspection.
