I purchased a coop from ebay for $150.00 a few weeks ago and purchased two egg laying red sex links from a farmer down the street. The coop is small but it said it could handle 3-4 birds. Those birds were laying an egg a day each. I have a 6ft fence around the coop roughly 25'X 25'. Then I thought I'll get another one since this is so much fun. The farmer sold me his last sex link currently laying and gave me two imature mixed ones free. Since adding the three new girls I am still only getting two eggs a day and the two imature hens wont go into the coop at all because they are intimidated. So...here is the real questions- will the imature hens ever come inside my coop to lay and also why do I have to scoop poop out of the nesting boxes every day? Is that normal? Do I have a crappy coop or is it the birds. I am starting wonder if this is for me. Im not sure what Im doing!!
