We have 4 Chesapeke something hens about 10 months old. They were laying on average 3 eggs per day, we changed the coop to add more nesting boxes - some were laying in the hay and some on the big box. After we changed it to 6 nice boxes and all cozy they stopped laying all together! First day nothing, second day 1 and after 3 days only 2 eggs. The hay is still the same where they were originally laying also. What did we do wrong? Will they come around again? They have a large area to roam and seem to be unafraid. When we go out they come to us. No change to food or veggie scraps. ??
