So I moved my flock into their winter home- in the 100 year old barn and was sad that I haven't gotten an egg since. I expected the disruption since they just started laying but was hopeful each day. I even put golf balls in the nests to entice them into a spot where I didn't have to search. Today I finally spotted the one hen way above my head singing an egg songFirst time I had heard that! I then proceeded on a lecture- NO YOU DIDN't lay there!!!!She did and I had to climb to even see them.Who knew I would actually have to look high and low for eggs. Not sure if it was only her laying in the nest so I will have to continue to look for eggs in strange places!
Will the chickens keep laying where they laid an egg before? And anyone know how to retrain a chicken on where they should lay their eggs?
