I received some egg laying hens last fall. They have acted normal the whole time, but I noticed last night they seemed to go up in the coop early. It was really overcast so i thought that had something to do with it. This morning they came out to eat and drink, but all 5 of them went back in the coop. No one is nesting. They are just scratching around. They seem to like the shade, but they usually hang out in the shady areas of the run, not the coop. They did come out for meal worms and then went back in. I did add some shredded paper a few days ago and that is new to them (it's in the coop) ... i dunno. Just want to see if this is normal or not. Thanks!
