I have 10 Chickens, 4 cinnamon Queens and 6 EE's. I bought 4 ciinamon queens and 2 EEs and then 2 weeks later 4 more EEs from the same place. So all are right at 7 months old now. I know the first 6 are all laying. But of the 4 only one is laying every other day under the coop. My coop is 30 inches off the ground so they can go under it. My coop is 8 x 8 and rest of run is 13 x 7. But having to crawl under coop to get egg is not fun. Husband thinks its funny. I hate to have to shut them in the coop to get her laying in the nest as I am sure its one thats lower in peck order. If I put a tempary nest box out side then move it into coop a week later and then take it away a week later will this work? Anyone try this as opposed to lock down? I have their water in the run so I can keep it thawed with heater. I lock them in at night and let them out just before its getting light so I know they can get to their water. Layer Feeder is in coop, along with free Oyster shell. I do have a golf ball in each nest and my origanal 6 use them. It has been 3 1/2 wweks since I added the 4 new ones. Any suggustions would be great. I just know if I do a lock down I will have to move water in and put up some dividers inside so lower pecking oder ones can hideout.
