Just brought home my 4 Rhode Island Reds yesterday. They seemed to have a good first day getting used to their coop and run. When I checked on them before bed they were all in a row inside the 2 nest boxes - they looked so scared. So this morning I check and of course they also crapped all in the boxes too. Being s super newbie - first time chicken person my guess is they will take some time to adjust and to lay again - they are 1 1/2 years old and came from a flock of 25 where they free ranged during the day. So I guess I just clean out the boxes and keep putting in free straw till they get more comfortable and will stop sleeping in there - maybe put a couple golf balls in there too?
