My chickens are "accidentally" free range. (They have a fenced yard, but every morning they fly over the fence and spend the whole day in the field/woods beside me.) As far as I know, they haven't started laying yet, but I expect they will soon (they were born April 10, give or take). I tried putting a fake plastic egg in the nest box to encourage them to lay there, but they just toss it around and play with it. It ends up in pieces in the corner of the coop. Any other tips for ensuring they lay in their nest boxes rather than somewhere out in the field?
