My pullets are getting to the age that I know that the eggs will be coming any day now. I have read that you can use golf balls in the nesting boxes to convince them to use them, My chickens will lay brown eggs, do i need to find something brown to emulate the egg, or will a normal white golf ball work just as well? Every morning I let them out to free range, and as they have found another source of water, (free flowing creek) they dont return to the run/coop untill dark. I forsee problems finding these eggs if they dont lay them in the nest boxes I built inside the coop. Also, I have a roost in the coop, but most of my chickens seem to prefer pilling up on each other to sleep in whats supposed to be a nest box. Will they lay eggs in the same place they sleep? I know there are alot of questions in there, any help is appreciated.
