    Finally I found an egg in the nest box. These hens have been laying everwhere else. Outside the coop, on the floor of the coop, on a table in the coop. Today I come home and I don't see an egg. I search around and low and behold there is one in the nest box. Now can you beat that.[​IMG]

    I did have some eggs in there for a while but they just ignored them. So I took them out after awhile. This is a first so we'll see what I get tomorrow.
