i have been finding broken eggs beneath my roosting pole which i thought were just rolling out of the nesting box. after securing the front edge of the nesting box and putting a poop counter/tray under the roosting poles, i have come to believe that one of my young hens (3) has not been using the nesting box and may be laying an egg while she is roosting at night. sleep laying, is that possible? how can i fix this? how does one reprogram a hen to go to the nesting box and lay an egg? should i put padding (old towels, shoebox with lots of wood shavings, etc.) on the poop counter to catch the egg for the short term? my DH says that a hen will stay in the same spot on the roosting pole so i guess i should do my homework and sneek a peek at them after dark to see who it might be . . .
