    Just found that our girls decided to start laying under our banana trees. So as of tomorrow I'm going to put them in jail for the day. Will this get them back to laying in the box?

    I just figured that if I kept them in the coop for the day and they would remember to lay in their box like usual. What does everyone think??

    I'd suggest their jail sentence be at least 3 or 4 days, not one.

    For a crime of such a magnitude, I would also say they require a longer sentence. I had the same problem with two of my hens and I sentenced them to three days. It worked perfectly. I now have another hen up to the same tricks, but I have not yet locked her up because I'm not sure whether she's even laying any eggs at the moment. If sh is, she's being really discreet about it:lol:

    Yep im with everyone here. You got a harsh jury. Longer sentence than 1 day. They wont break the habit in one day. You should send us a mug shot of them.

    Quote:Definitely not. I tried and failed, which is why such a crimes carries a jail term of no less than three days. Even, I consider myself as having been lucky in breaking the habit in only three days. So what if you're working the next day? They should have thought of that before staging an uprising [​IMG]

    Longer sentence, It took a criminal group of seven RIR's seven days to see the light and lay in the right spot with on and off parole for a few days before a big lockup.

    I can't get past "banana tree". I can't imagine having something like that growing in my yard. [​IMG]
