    We've been letting out chickens out to run and scratch in the Spring air. Didn't think they were getting in the neighbors yard, but my neighbor found that my hens have been laying eggs in the bushes at her house! She thought it was funny and we gave her some of the eggs, but I was surprised that they laid the eggs outside of the nesting boxes. Any good ways to train them to lay back in the boxes? I'm not going to let them out for awhile, that's for sure.

    I was wondering why my egg production was down.

    Lock them up in the hen house for a couple of days. They will remember where they are suppose to lay.
