I've got 3 nest boxes for 5 hens and they all insist on using the same one. Not "same one" as in they all only use 1, but "same one" as in wherever the first egg is laid, the rest of them end up in the same nest box. Naturally, this means there is a line of hens waiting their turn to use the nest box du jour. Today Salty, my bottom rung EE, couldn't hold it anymore and she wound up making a nest and laying in it on the floor under the roost. She tried to do this yesterday when Bowling Ball, the alpha hen, had laid her egg but was hogging the nest box. I know it probably wasn't the right thing to do, but I pulled BB off the nest, collected her egg, shoe'd her out the door, and put Salty in the box where, 10 mins later, she laid her egg and went about her business. Anyhow, I can't do that every day. Should I just add another nest box elsewhere in the coop (which seems stupid because there are already 2 others in there!) or is there a way to fight what seems to be a losing battle? They've only been laying for about a month, but somehow they all seem to be on the same time-cycle and lay at the same time of day. I don't want to have to search the coop and run for eggs, soI'd really like to nip this if I can.
