I'm very new to this and so am reading as much as I can about how to get my chickens to be happy, healthy, and laying efficiently. I've had them 6 full days now. I read a thread that said that I should have a perch above the nesting box and that the chickens would sit on the perch and lay an egg in to the nesting box. Is this true? Though I'm a chicken newbie, all my life I thought chickens actually "sat" in the box to lay eggs. All the pictures I've seen on this site so far don't seem to show a perch above the nesting box. What advice can y'all give me?? Thanks!
