Now these hens have 12 different boxes to choose from, but they try to lay in the same ones instead. These two boxes are the most popular. Although, today I saw a promising sign…

lacyUnfortunately, our hens do not lay right away and they spent several minutes going in and out of these new boxes. So I went back in and came back out later….

eggs-in-new-box…yeah eggs!!! 😀 It has taken them a couple of weeks before they decide to lay there. I think since more of them are laying now that the warmer weather is here they are being forced to lay elsewhere. Plus I don’t think they liked just plain pine straw and leaves, so we shoveled in some dirt. Obviously, that hit the mark.
