How do I get my chicken to lay in the laying box or at least away from where they roost. I have two nice laying boxes that my old chickens (now gone) and my bantam always used to use. The new chickens started using the laying boxes but then I suspect the Astralorps have gotten too big to fit in the boxes and the other chickens are following suit. I even put a box with low sides and no top where I had the laying boxes and the young chickens still make a nest in the corner where they roost and lay their eggs there. I then have to get a rake and pull the eggs across the litter I have down for them that also has chook poo on it. Is there a way to force them into the boxes or even the box with low sides and no top or will they just keep laying where they want to?
