HI, I have four new hens (adults). I now live in Japan, and we got the girls from a mental hospital that allows their patients to raise farm animals as therapy. They came from a large group of chickens in a very large enclosed space. They now live at our chicken coop outside. The coop is 2 connected bays on the upper level and a single bay on the ;lower level connected by a ramp. The bays are each 6 feet by four feet and each 4 feet tall. We put the nesting boxes on the lower level so we could access them easier. So far the hens have not gone down the ramp. Should the nesting boxes be o the upper level? And should we expect a break-in period before they start laying eggs again? Thanks for any help, we are excitedly new at this. Also, don't know what the breed is.
