ZEUS is an automatic nest that is designed for both breeders and commercial layers, engineered by SKA having in mind simplicity of operation and cleaning. The care and attention given to the design and manufacturing of ZEUS provides the hens with a comfortable environment in which to lay their eggs.
All wooden components of ZEUS nest are made of multilayered wood, resistant to wear and contamination. The nest does not damage the eggs but keeps them safe and clean.
The automatic collection system has two main advantages: less labour requirement and less floor eggs. The versatility of ZEUS nest allows it to be positioned back to back along the length of the poultry house. Wherever necessary spaces can be left between the nests to allow for the natural circulation of the birds. Hens can enter through either side of each block of nest. Eggs are laid onto a special synthetic pad and roll gently into a central collecting channel.
Each nest floor has a galvanized wire mesh, a perforated "AstroTurf ®" mat and a polypropylene sheet in between to eliminate cold air draught, and all these components can be easily removed for cleaning. The hens can be prevented from sitting in the nests for too long at any given period of time. Each nest in equipped with a mesh panel, which can be automatically closed with a series of short movements and long breaks alternatively to gently encourage the hens out of the nest.
When the panel is fully up it prevents entry into the nest during the times programmed by the operator (e.g. during the night). In this way it is possible to maintain a cleaner nest.
The eggs travel along a wide, rigid, polypropylene belt and arrive safely at the end of collection point. The belt speed can be adjusted electronically according to the number of eggs. A series of holes on the belt discharge any dirt and ensure that the eggs do not roll during collection.
ZEUS is extremely easy and fast to assemble.
