HI, I am a new chicken owner too as well as new to the site...any advice would be greatly appreciated! I have 2 leghorns and one Barred Rock, I got them as new hens that just started laying. The black one laid from day one and after a few days stopped. The other 2 have been laying pretty consistently but refuse to use the new nesting boxes. They all used them in the first coop, but after a week we moved them into a newer bigger one and now it's a free for all. In the woods, from the roosting bar....wherever! Well anyway, if anyone has any good tips or tricks I'm all ears. I do love them and am definitely hooked, my husband and sons are calling me the crazy chicken lady!
