I received four new adult hens from a friend who couldn't take care of them anymore. I slowly introduced them and everything was fine. After about a week my roosters started acting like a bunch of turds and would gang up on the new hens and umm...you know. My young roosters obviously didn't quite know what they were doing or how to do it like nice boys so we've now put four of the roosters into the smaller coop and let the hens loose in the chicken yard because the hens were obviously unhappy in confinement. Because the rest of my hens will not be old enough to lay we had not made nesting boxes so I had to come up with these real quick. I found the idea on Pinterest and was wanting more experienced opinions as to whether they should work AND how to help the hens know they are there for them. I can't catch them right now and I don't want to stress them more than they already are because of the roosters by chasing them around the yard. These were somewhat quickly put together but they are secured to each other and to the railing in the back. There's card board in the bottoms (to be replaced by some wood or something that will hold up better later) and the card board is covered by a sheet of roofing rubber. chicken wire is in the front which has card board in front of it and the back is card board too. The card board is all temporary until I can get wood cut to fit in it's place. There are also golf balls sitting in two of them (that's all I could find) to attempt to help the hens see that it's a safe place to lay. What do you all think??
