I have 6 hens and they all have a laying box why is it that they all cram into 2 of them? Will they start laying in their own box? I haven't gotten any eggs just yet but it could be any day. I am afraid if they all cram into 2 boxes that will hinder their laying of eggs....help me out please not sure what to do.

They feel the safest laying eggs where someone else also lays eggs. Laying together in one nest is normal chicken behavior. Generally you only need 1 box per every 4 chickens. I have 5 chickens and 2 nests but they all lay in one.
