I have 2 RIR's aged 16 weeks and 1 Buff orpington around 18 weeks. In the last 2 days, they've started spending almost their entire day in the coop (it's part of an enclosed run). It's a very unusual change b/c before they spent most of their time outside scratching about in the run. I can't really tell what they are doing in there but they aren't roosting, they seem to be just sitting inside the coop behind the door on the pine bedding (where I can't see them). I was concerned the first day b/c i didn't see them come out that mucn to eat or drink. Today I put some food in the coop and looks like they ate most of that when i checked on them after work. Do you think they are getting ready to lay? It seems a little early for that. I looked around in the coop for an egg but just saw lots of poop. Or maybe they are just having parties inside the coop where I can't see them from the webcam.
