Figures that they are still sleeping in their nesting boxes which leads to poo in their nesting box and then spooling the eggs. Any suggestions on getting them to roost by themselves. Btw I have tried blocking off the nesting boxes at night for about 2 weeks but they still try to sleep in the nesting boxes instead of hopping right on the roost.
I was thinking about you, how are the girls doing with sleeping in the nest boxes? I was wondering if you managed to fix that and what worked for you, if it is fixed.
