    I noticed something the head hen does when I clean and change the bedding in the main and side coop. When I am putting in the bedding for the nesting boxes she watches, when she is satisfied their is enough bedding she clucks and moves on to the next box until all the boxes are filled to her satisfaction, then she sits in each one in turn and only after that happens is anyone else allowed in them!!!!!!!!!!!!
