So I have 10 hens (8 different breeds) Im pretty sure only 4 of them are laying right now.My problem is that some times they lay in the coop and some times they dont. I have found 2 different spots (by the base of trees) that they have laid. One of the spots I found 7 eggs the other I found 2 eggs. They are just over 5 months old. I clean the coop every week and they have fresh water and food every day plus free range of my yard and garden. I have also kept them in the coop for a week to see if they will get the idea that, that is where they should be laying. I have 2 questions... 1. what else can I do to make my hens understand that they are supposed to lay in they are supposed to lay in the coop? 2. When do you think my other hens will start laying?
