MILFORD, Indiana, U.S.A. — Chore-Time introduces its Valego Nest Systems, available as floor nests and as integrated nests in Volito™ Aviary Systems. The nests’ proven product design is now offered from Chore-Time through its acquisition of the Volito Group, a Netherlands-based designer and manufacturer of cage-free egg production systems.   

All Valego Nest configurations use a common platform, providing a wide range of options. They can be configured as highly efficient rack-drive expulsion (RDE) systems with either flat or pitched roofs. They are also available with moveable-floor expulsion (MFE) systems. All styles offer easy installation and maintenance, requiring only common tools to construct. Smart “Click & Fix” nest walls and roofs further simplify installation and repair needs.   

High-quality materials are used throughout the Valego Nest Systems. The walls and roofs are made with durable, A-grade, film-faced plywood, which provides a sturdy, quiet environment for birds that is easier to clean and more durable than plastic or steel construction. The galvanized steel frame is assembled using TAPTITE™ screws, and the adjustable legs are constructed entirely of stainless steel. Additionally, the nest systems use AstroTurf® pads for improved hygiene.

Accessories include variable-speed drive units, classic or brush-style return units, collection tables, conveyors and elevators.
