I have 6 red sex linked pullets who are 18 weeks old. They started laying 2 weeks ago. So far we average 5 eggs a day. The problem is that they are laying them in a hole they dug instead of the coop. The frist 4 eggs where in the coop then well they found a spot they preferred. I put golf balls in the nestboxes and the next morning it looked like they had played a round of golf, the balls where scattered around. I put the golfballs back and they have not moved again. Tried keeping them locked in the coop, but i felt awful after a few hours because the coop gets so hot (this was from 9am to about 2pm) it is 100 degrees. Should I just be glad they all lay in the same hole, and that I can easily get the eggs from it? Or should I just buck up and keep them locked up for a few days despite the heat? Any suggestons would be helpfull.
