My 2 month old girls are pooping in their nesting boxes - Yuck!

The boxes are standard construction, they do have a 3" board on the front to hold the bedding inside, and I suspect though I haven't actually seen it, that they are roosting on that board?

They are only 9 weeks old, does that have anything to do with it?

Thanks!

New site looks cool too... ;-)

Close off the next boxes until laying age. I used a panel of hardware cloth to keep them out of the nest boxes. Make sure your roosts are higher than the nest boxes and they should stay out of the nests once they get the hang of sleeping on roost.
