Howdy all! Newbie here. We started with chickens this last fall when my kids joined 4H. We were just gonna get a few so the kids can learn them for next year and the fair. Well 3 coops later we have 12 chickens and 2 pullets(those are the younger ones right?) So to make a long story short we built a large coop last to put all the big girls in. We were getting about six eggs a day once we move them all in and everything is great. Then we started getting less and less eggs and finally I caught one of my leghorns eating an egg. So we wanted to confirm and make sure that that's what was really happening so we tested her out and sadly that is exactly what happened. So we put her into a different coop by herself and changed her diet. The last two days she has laid her own egg and has not eaten it, yay. Meanwhile in the big coop we get maybe one egg a day out of all 11 hens that are in there. We don't believe there is another egg eater so my question is this, do chickens prefer privacy to lay their eggs? The reason I ask is because with the way that we design their nests it isn't fully enclosed as in the sides are opened and the nests themselves do not have a tall wall between each other. Any help would be great. Thanks!
