I have four hens, two of which have just started laying. The first to lay was my RIR followed closely by my Light Brahma, who now takes over the entire coop when laying an egg. She squaks and makes other loud noises when anyone or anything gets near the coop. We have to remove all the others from the main run, forcing the RIR to lay underneath a bush. We have since set up a nest box under said bush for her comfort. Fall is here and winter is fast approaching. What am I going to do when it gets too cold for them to lay outside. How do I keep my Brahma from bogarting the coop??
