I currently have five hens, all decent layers. I used to have nest boxes, but they always insisted on making their own nests in my hay bales. I eventually gave in and let them keep the hay. It was going well for a few a while, but about a month ago all egg production seemed to have stopped! They're happy, healthy, and young so there's no way they could just stop laying! They free range, so I'm worried they might be laying in the woods or somewhere in the neighbor's yard. I've tried making they're nests darker, putting golf balls/fake eggs in them, and even elevating the already tall bales of hay even higher! I don't know what to do at this point- please help!
