    My bunny and hens cohabitate in the run. His hutch is in there but in the day they hang out together. So my hens were laying just fine in their egg box from the start in their coop but and would occationally lay in the hutch but it was rare. The last few months there have been more and more in the hutch and now they are revolting against their box and are only laying in the hutch! I am cloing up the hutch now ofter but they are seriously driving me crazy thinking that they belong in that hutch. What do I do??

    They have decided that your rabbit is the Easter bunny. Try placing 'nest eggs' where you want them to lay, and continue locking them out of the rabbit hutch.
