All four of my girls insist on laying under the roost, right in the poo! I keep their house clean and they have lots of bedding but even so,I'd much prefer them to lay in their nest boxes (which are spotless and have loads of soft bedding). However, so far they haven't shown any sign of interest in the nest boxes, though they like to inspect them when I clean the house I collect the eggs at least twice a day and I've bought some fake (rubber) eggs and put those in the nest boxes in the hope that they'll take the hint but no luck yet. Will they get the idea eventually do you think or is there something else I can do to encourage them to be more hygienic in their laying habits?!
