    In five years of raising chickens in an all-female environment, this is a first. One of my 10-mo. old giant cochin hens has started just hanging out in the coop in one of the nesting places. We've removed her several times a day, boxed out her favorite place, and she just switched places. Will she snap out of it eventually?
