Well, all my girls prefer one nest box.... A large rubbermaid container with a chicken sized whole cut in it. I have 4 pullets that have been laying all in the same box and calmly taking turns. Violet my EE has decided to hog the nest box this morning and won't leave She's been in there two+ hours and counting and the other girls are getting very upset. She is currently making the wooden fake egg very warm and won't leave even when I reached under her to check! I hope she's just taking her sweet time and not going broody on me after only 2 weeks of laying. I really need some more eggs this morning, so I can make breakfast!
