I have a coop for my birds, but they have free range of my acre fenced yard during the day. They have just started laying -- I got six eggs today -- I have 3 hens with bright red combs and three as old but the combs aren't so bright red, and 5 16 week old birds that probably aren't laying yet. I think only three are laying so far and I missed noticing the eggs yesterday. Anyway, for all of you who allow your birds to free range and get all the grass, weedseeds, and bugs they want, do you have a lot of problem with birds choosing nests outside the coop where you can't find them? how do you increase the odds of their laying in the coop?
