layer cage for chickens

Layer cages, usually made from galvanised steel mesh, are manufactured in South Africa. The cages are made to hold at least 3 point of lay chickens per bay – but some farmers place up to 5 birds in a bay. You will need to de-beak chickens that are raised in layer cages. A chicken laying cage is made for factory farming of eggs for eating. The birds will spend their life in the cage standing on a wire mesh floor. When the chicken lays an egg it rolls forward and is caught by a trough that is then cleared 2 – 3 times a day. The cages have nipples for the chickens to drink from and a feeding trough at the front. Most layer cages come un-assembled and need to be crimped together and stacked. They are suitable for small poultry farmers and for large chicken houses. If you have animal rights issues – this form of poultry farming will not be for you. These cages for chickens are high quality galvanised mesh and will last many many years.
