I have 2 hens that have just started laying and they refuse to lay in the coop. They not only refuse to lay in the coop, but they make a full on jail break from the run and head to the bushes in the front yard right against the house. I haven't had this issue with any of my other hens. I've seen both of them go in the coop and sit on other eggs, and then leave and lay somewhere else. I know some people say to lock them in the coop, but I can't do that. My coop is small and only holds 8 birds. It is for sleeping in at night and laying eggs. Plus it's been obnoxiously hot here and I'd have roast chicken for dinner if I did that. But I have fake eggs out there, nesting boxes are always kept clean and I try to keep it cool with a fan. I'm not sure how to make the coop anymore inviting. Suggestions? Also their wings have been clipped and I have a blockade in front of the gate. But to no avail. They are hell bent on getting out.
