I know I should not be complaining...my new set of chickens have started to lay..... in the corners, under the feeder, out side under the bushes, and in the middle of the run!! They don't free range but finding these eggs after dark in the cold is a little un nerving indeed. I have 25 of them and about 16 are laying.... will the ones that are laying nilly willie take after the good ones who are laying in the nesting boxes eventually... or do I have to search for eggs for ever now??? My first group of hens are on thier winter vacation and have totally stopped laying... but they all laid thier eggs in the nesting boxes from the very beginning... I did nothing different with this group...just wondering why they are doing this....
