So bare with me, as I'm a first time chicken newbie. I got 3 buff orpington chicks in late June, and when I moved them out to their coop, I followed others' advice and blocked the 2 nest boxes off. I have a rather small hen house which we are going to re-build in a few months, so because I was worried they weren't having enough room in there, I uncovered the boxes. Now, all 3 of them sleep huddled up together in one nest box. Which, I guess that's fine, but I was hoping they would spread out a little more. Now, they are just about at laying age and I read to put golf balls in their nesting boxes to encourage them to lay there, and not outside in their run. So, of course, now, all 3 of them lay in the nesting box with the golf balls. I tried switching the balls to the other nest box, they followed. Ugh! Haha, long story short, is this a problem I need to correct, or normal chicken behavior? They are such silly girls. They do look awful funny all crammed in one nest box, but I'd like to encourage them to lay in one and maybe sleep in the other? Any advice is welcome, thanks!
