....they lay a few eggs at a time, but walk away and don't continue sitting on them. They lay them in our small goat barn, then walk away. Some are layed in the nesting boxes, which are inside the coop, but off of the floor, nailed into the wall of the coop. We have 3 of them. Wondering if they need more privacy for laying/hatching chicks? They free range around our property, but not exactly sure how I feel about them hatching chicks outside under one of our bushes/shrubbery.
