    So my hens and one rooster are all around 22 weeks and we have 5 laying so far. The only minor issue is that one Golden Sex Link keeps trying to come in the house to lay her eggs! The first few times she was behind the TV, but today my girlfriend gave her a space in the closet and she laid one within 10 minutes.

    Has anyone else had an issue with a chicken that won't lay outside or in the coop?

    What are you current nesting boxes? Might think about redesigning them. I read something about keeping chickens locked up until noon time to help them learn to lay in the nesting boxes. Also putting golf balls into the nesting boxes as well.

    I've not had that happen, but that is adorable! Funny how she'd rather be inside, huh?
