    One of my chickens has started laying in the other one's nest! They've made their own nests in the garden. Today i made a pile of leaves for Eggie. I put her on there, and she sat down and I left her to get used to her new nest, but as soon as I left she got up and layed in feathers' nest! Again! Do you have any ideas how i can get her on the new nest or in her old nest? It's confusing when I'm collecting the eggs, coz I'm keeping a tally of their eggs and when there's only one i don't know who it is.

    Thanks

    i tried to keep mine in different nest but when the want a spot it is hard to make them lay somewhere they don't want to if you free range, mite try golf balls in the one you want her to nest in.
