We stayed up very late last night, so I was late letting the chickens out. As it has been for the last couple of weeks the younger birds are forsaking the nestboxes in their coop and running as fast as they can to the brahma coop to use their nestboxes. I was just out there. Every single nestbox - 7 of them - in the larger coop is empty and no eggs. Meanwhile in the brahma coop - all three nestboxes are occupied (by two younger birds and one brahma) and there are 4 pullets quietly waiting their turn. I just don't get it! The nestboxes are identical in both coops. Same design, same color, same nesting material, hay. There is a crate occupied in the larger coop by my broody; but she's not chasing anybody and being evil, she's sitting quietly. I just ordered all new nestboxes for the larger coop. I guess now I have to decide where to put them? The brahmas have had the same nestboxes for three years, so I wasn't planning on replacing them. However, if there's going to be a traffic jam every day I may have to install the new boxes in the brahma coop.
