We’ve ordered an Egg Skelter from, and this may come as a shock to some of you, www.egg-skelter.co.uk
Now you may ask … what is the point of an Egg Skelter? No it’s not to give just-laid Eggs the scare of their life … it is to keep eggs in date order so that the oldest ones are eaten first.
As you can see from the picture above, by the amazing use of gravity no batteries or difficult to maintain mechanisms are required. Simply add the newest eggs from the top and take the oldest eggs from the bottom.
The Egg Skelter holds up to 24 hens’ eggs.
