    Isn't it funny how whichever box is in use-is the one they all want to use? I will have 4 hens deep waiting for a box to come available, when there are 5 other boxes for them to choose from-insane! And they change boxes from day to day as well.

    That's why I ripped out the nest boxes on one wall that never got used and built another perch.

    Now, the fourteen hens have two nest boxes in one coop and three in another coop. They stand in line to use one nest box.[​IMG]
