Just Chicken Stuff

    Thought I might tell you a little about my chickens: I got my five girls on April 4, 2011, from Tractor Supply. They are Red sexlinks. I have really enjoyed watching them grow up. They are now, a little over 5 months old and have started to lay eggs. One of the girls does not know to use the nesting box to lay in, instead she gets back on the roost to lay her eggs. This is not good because the egg falls to the floor and then is cracked and is lying in the poop, so I toss them because they are unsanitary. If anyone can give a suggestion on how to teach her to use the nest I would appreciate the comments.
    Thanks in advance
