We thought our production was poor due to the cooler weather, in spite of food, free range, leftovers, etc. Well, DH found a pile of about 30 eggs in 6" grass by the creek. The thing that gets me is that it's within 40' of the coop! How do we encourage all of them to lay in their boxes? We have fence around the coop to lock them in but they fly too well and most will get out. Would it be necessary to build the fence higher? Do we just hope for lots of snow? Golf balls? Now that we know about this secret stash we can monitor how many/day but I want to discourage this behavior! Thanks in advance!
