So i broke a cardinal rule and have no true laying boxes in my hen house. I have 4 roosting rungs and a large floor area that is thick with straw. The girls seem to always lay the eggs in the straw. If i were to build laying boxes in the house would they start laying in them? Or is it too late? Would 4 boxes be enough for 11 hens? My chickens are spoiled, but i feel bad about not providing laying boxes. A side question: Would the lack of boxes lead to a lack of eggs? Or will a chicken lay as long as it has somewhere "safe" to lay. Thank you!
