Since its introduction over 25 million birds have been housed on the Bolegg Terrace, expressing the great success of this aviary system. The Bolegg Terrace is designed like a tree. No other system is as open as the Bolegg Terrace. Together with the smart positioning of the perches, this facilitates vertical movement of the hens. Without encountering any obstacles hens can move within the system and over its full length.

The nest is located in the heart of the Bolegg Terrace. Every morning hens descend from the perch to drink, eat and lay their eggs. The attractive, comfortable and safe nest area minimises eggs laid outside of the nest.

The layout of the Bolegg Terrace allows for wide and obstacle free corridors as birds move vertically. They do not need to fly from one row to another. These corridors and the open system enable:

  • good visual access for easy inspection;
  • an optimal light distribution minimizing floor eggs;
  • a pleasant working environment;
  • possibility for cleaning with a mini loader.


The nest is designed using smart Vencomatic innovations including the Vencomat, the tipping floor and the egg belt and can be extended with the Vencobelt and Vencoslat. With these innovations you collect your hatching eggs in perfect condition.
