Our 23 hens are almost 4 months old. We built 8 nesting boxes and put wood chips on the bottom. We also built roosts for them to make it easier to get into the boxes. None of the chickens have gone in there yet. They did examine the new addition quite carefully when we put it up. How does one teach hens what these boxes are for? Also, we have a one-legged chicken that uses her wings to help her walk, but I've never seen her fly. She came with the other leg deformed (at one day old from MacMurray). She's also a slow developer, and is smaller than the rest. Should we just assume she won't lay eggs? How can we help her get into one of the lower nesting boxes? Build a ramp (which I don't think she'd use)? Thanks for your suggestions on both questions!
