And when I say outside, I mean totally separate from the coop? I have six hens who are eating eggs and I have tried many solutions to no avail. I'm wondering if getting metal, front collection rolling nest boxes and putting them in the run will work. The run is fully enclosed chain link, including the top. Has anyone ever done this or can you think of a good reason NOT to do it? And does anyone have a good suggestion for which company to buy these from?
