Roll out nest tray field notes

Roll out nest box working to keep eggs clean.

The roll out nest box has proven itself to be a major, major innovation.

Our eggs have never been so clean.

It's helped to alert us to a problem hen who has figured out how to peck at an egg from the nest. She can barely reach that far and must've been doing it before the roll out nest box.

I like this idea but could you give a more detailed explanation of your roll out nest tray? I'm having trouble visualizing how the eggs are getting into the tray when the hens lay the eggs. Pictures/drawings would help as well.
