So I have 7 hens and a rooster. I keep them locked in there coop at night and till about 9 in the morning. I have put golf balls in the nesting boxes but they still will not lay in the nesting boxes. I don't know what to do to get them to lay in the nesting boxes. I have covered and taken awy some of the places they like to lay, but it would be impossible to iliminate them all.
