I recently moved my 2 hens and rooster in a coop with my younger hen who hathed last year. One of my 2 hens is laying under a rose bush. When I moved them every morning she would be let out she would run around to this rose bush and lay. At first we didn't know where she was going but one morning I ran after her as saw her go under the bush and there was about six eggs there, lol. How can I get this hen to lay in the coop? The other two lay in the coop every morning so why isn't she?

You will have to keep her in the coop until she gets in the habit of laying there. If you dont monitor this carefully, you may end up with an unexpected brood of chicks. Good luck!
