One of our red hens was picking out a box this morning, so my hubby kept her in the run/coop area and let the other ones out (we let them out to run all day, and bring them in at night). None of our hens have layed eggs yet, but they are the rright age and we've seen the rooster on her. Well, after about 5 minutes she started hollering for the rest of the flock so he let her back out. We want her to lay eggs in the coop and not out in the bush! what to do? I hate to isolate her ffrom the rest of the flock. The reason we have to keep the door to the run closed during the day is because it opens up to where we keep some of our goats and they will go in there and eat what's left of the food etc. (and generally mess everything up--you know how curious goats are).
