Nest is a kit-set hen house and supporting system designed specifically for first-time hen keepers in urban areas who can provide refuge for spent hens (hens considered unusable by farms). To minimize damage to the owner’s property, the house has been designed to rotate 360 degrees on a ground spike and bearing system. Other key features include a regulator in the roof to control light and air flow and a specialized slatted floor which allows dropping to fall through into a wood shavings mix that helps prevent odor.
The Nest is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept Luminary Winner.
