    We built a new chicken coop a few weeks ago, I have been getting 6-8 eggs a day. On Saturday we put in a window for some natural light, coming into the winter, and today is Monday and we where watching them and they were flying into the window:rolleyes:
    Yesterday we only got 2 eggs and today none!!!! Did I mess up with the window should I cover it up???

    Why not put some of those window clings on it so they'll know it's there. Even my indoor parrots do that. They'll fly right into the window. They just don't understand what glass is.

    Is the window making the coop really bright inside?

    This is what bird-brains do. They'll quit doing it as soon as they figure out that it's not a way to get out.
