Hello I have been reading a few threads about hens fighting over the same nesting box but np one else has mentioned it being so severe that they have broken eggs. For the last 5 days I have had at least one or two broken eggs a day. I stayed in the coop yesterday and today and watched as 5 of my 6 chickens tried to squeeze in one box. I have 3 boxes in there! They climb on top of each other and push and peck each other. It went on for over an hour. Then one that was hardly in the box layed but instead of it landing in the soft nest box her bottom was sticking out and the egg fell to the ground and broke. That is how I have been finding the broken ones on the ground. I wasn't sure if they were just getting pushed out but now know they are being layed outside the box. They have always used the same box but never have I had this happening so frequently. Does any one have any suggestions?
