Horizontal lead wire mainly plays a supporting role, can be used 12 lead wire, horizontal spacing for 5-6 cm.The horizontal lead wire is arranged under the vertical lead wire, so as not to prevent the egg from rolling out.The bottom net inclines to lo degree from back to front and extends out of the cage. The end is bent upward to form the collecting groove.The groove is 12 to 16 centimeters wide.
