A-Frame Cage System for Eggs

Chore-Time’s A-Frame Cage System for caged layers provides an excellent environment for egg production and maximum feed savings, together with two options for manure handling. 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

Chore-Time’s composite mesh floor uses smaller mesh openings at the front of the cages for an improved bird environment and reduced bird mortality.

Sturdy Welded A-Frames

Rugged A-frame stands provide durable support for Chore-Time’s A-frame cages without the need for truss rods. All system components, including cages and feed troughs, tie directly into our projection-welded A-frame cage support system for added stability and long life.
