G'day everyone,I'm new to this site and new to having chooks,i spent the last week building my chookpen and i bought three chooks yesterday and i've got two eggs already.The only problem i have is their laying the eggs on the floor and not in the box's.I have a nesting box for each chook up off the ground on a shelf with a ramp so they can get to them can anyone tell me how to get them to use the box's?
any help will be much appreciated.Jim

Welcome from Indiana Jim...

I just used a golfball in each box and showed the girls, they haven't laid on the floor since. That was my experience but there may be others with more helpful advice!

Hey, I'm a newbie from USA, North Carolina. This is a very addictive website but, you can learn everything here you need to know about chooks or chicks whatever we call 'em.
