Hi so I have 5 hens. They are Rhode Island Reds. They have nesting roosts for them to lay eggs in. But they don't. Only 1 does. We only get 1 big brown egg each day. I want to get all 5 a day. They used to lay eggs in the roosts. Then stopped. I have put fake eggs in there to try to get them to lay in there. No luck. We have 5 acres of land full of sheds, barns, and long grass. Does anyone have any ideas on how to find the nests without having to search through 5 acres? Or make them lay in the roosts?
