    Sounds like it's time for some hens to go into lockdown, till they remember what nesboxes are for.
    Either that or they could be going into a molt, which mine are doing right now.

    Very well could be molting. 2 of mine have been for about 2 weeks and I haven't gotten any eggs since they started. Just piles of feathers [​IMG]
