Okay so I only have 4 hens laying and had 2 boxes for them to lay in but I had to add 3 more boxes today because I ran into a problem. When you have a hen decide to go broody and lay her eggs so she can sit on them in one box it takes you down to one box (this hen really doesn't like to share her "nest" with anyone and will peck anyone who tries so they just don't) The remaining 3 hens really don't want to share the box that is left because they really like the one that my broody girl is using. A natural effect of this is that now I am finding eggs all over the coop where ever they decide to lay them. Hopefully with the three new boxes they will be able to share a little more. The trials of being a chicken momma. By the way the worst part of this whole thing is that it's still way below freezing on a normal day up here so my little Pumpkin is working hard to try and hatch out babies but I can't let her keep any eggs because they will just freeze when the temps drop again. How do you explain that to a chicken?? They don't read the books lol.
