I'm going to look into the saddles....I'm sure this won't be the last time a chicken gets picked on.

We have several nesting boxes for our 20 hens, and they all lay in ONE. :lau

 

Go figure.

and likewise his pack; and he that hath no sword,

let him sell his garment and buy one."

They can be quite goofy about laying.

I have 3 boxes, each one gets used. One of my BO girls hogs the middle one, she is quite demanding when there is a need to lay her egg.

I do have a SLW who is a quite a Nervous Nellie and she absolutely refuses to lay in a box. Nothing I have tried works. She has a beautiful nest made in the back corner of the coop and her egg is there everyday:/ (No it's not dirty, she fluffs and preens her nest everyday too). No one bothers her nest, even Charlie the cockerel doesn't go there.

I just leave her be.
