Red Top Fly Trap

Genuine by PestTrappa

Red top fly trap

Exceedingly effective for outdoor use. Ideal for smallholdings, poultry farms, dairies, or anywhere plagued by flies every summer. Low cost easy to use, disposable, catches up to 20,000 flies each trap and once trapped they can't escape. Bait is especially appealing to female flies, so reduces the next generation. Simply hang the fly trap in direct sunlight away from the area you wish to protect. Bait lasts up to 12 weeks.

Egg Grading

Egg Weighing Scales

egg weighing scales

£34.73 inc VAT

A digital scale accurate to 0.1g. There are many similar small scales on the market. This model has been thoroughly tested by ourselves and was found to be the most effective for weighing eggs. Its main advantage is that it has a very fast stabilisation time, (1 second or less) essential if there are several hundred eggs to grade. Also, it has a test weight for calibration (DEFRA may test your eggs to make sure they have been accurately weighed). There is a back light so that the scale can be read in a darkened room (candling of eggs is easier in a darkened area).

When purchased from Cheshire Chickens the scale includes an advice sheet on grading eggs, a pre tested scale set up and ready to use and an “O” ring to centralise the egg on the scale. Runs off AAA batteries - included.

Grading of eggs will be of most interest to people who have registered with DEFRA as a packing station. This will allow you to sell your eggs to retailers and caterers and allow you to keep an unlimited amount of laying hens.

XL XL or Very Large eggs are 73g ▲

This stamp is truly remarkable. With a little practice it can stamp 5,000 to 7,000 eggs per hour using just one hand which is faster than the professional printer fitted to my egg grader at a cost of £4,000. The printing is much sharper and very much more reliable too.
