Modular Manure Belt (MMB™) Cages

Chore-Time's Modular Manure Belt Cage System offers egg producers the outstanding production performance they expect from Chore-Time, plus greater shipping simplicity, easier assembly and repair, and improved egg roll-out -- all in an economical cage system that meets current bird space standards. Pullet systems are also available.

Sturdy Construction

Chore-Time cages are quality-built in North America. Solid construction and heavy-duty materials combine with our innovative design for years of superior performance.

Composite Mesh Floor

A composite mesh floor helps lower mortality by using a tighter mesh spacing where birds stand, coupled with a more open spacing in other sections of the floor.

Cage Door Latch

Chore-Time's metal door latch offers true one-handed operation. Its positive lock means chickens do not get out.

Other Cage Features

  • Cages are available in 3-high to 12-high models in cage rows up to 520 feet (160 meters) long; walkways and/or step rails are easily integrated.
  • Dual floor slope improves egg roll-out, and distance from cage to egg tray helps protect eggs from bird damage.
  • Modular design features individual cages instead of 8-foot (2.4-meter) cage sections -- makes cage replacement and manure belt access easier.
  • Easy assembly features innovative interlocking parts, and requires fewer rings.
  • Full-front horizontal cage door provides easier, more comfortable access to feed and to the cage interior.
  • For even greater durability, cages and structural components are manufactured using all galvanized steel construction and Galfan® cage floors.
  • Flexible cage floor has tighter mesh spacing in bird standing area and is better for birds' feet.
  • Mesh partitions improve ventilation.
  • Floor support is simple solid rod construction. Does not require constant end-row tension.
  • System is covered by Chore-Time's generous cage warranty and solid backing. (See Chore-Time's written warranty for complete details.)

A-Frame Cage Systems

Chore-Time's A-Frame Cage Systems for caged layers provide an excellent environment for egg production and maximum feed savings together with two options for manure handling. Pullet systems are also available.

Composite Mesh Floor

Chore-Time's composite mesh floor uses smaller mesh openings at front of cages for an improved bird environment.

Sturdy Welded A-Frames
