    Just noticing that my ladies love one particular nesting box. The thing that is weird to me is that both boxes I have are exactally the same for the exception one is on the right side and one is on the left. I am wondering if this is common wih other hens? Do your girls have favorite boxes too?

    Yes, they always have a favorite, very normal. The other boxes are just so if someone's gotta lay NOW, there is a place available. [​IMG]

    Yeah there's always a favorite nest box which has more eggs than the others. There also seems to be a least favorite next box which seems to almost always be empty.
