I have chickens 20 weeks old. They are my pandemic chicks spoiled rotten. I love them dearly. At night when I close door to coop, I wait till they are settled on roost @ night. I “tuck” them in petting each 1 at night. They are Rhode Island Reds and they will fuss on rare evenings I don’t tuck in. 1 just started laying but she does it on floor instead of nesting boxes. Nesting boxes about 14” above floor on bottom boxes. There’s straw & fake eggs in boxes & I use deep litter so they are actually closer to floor. What can I do to make boxes more enticing? I have 2 Roosters. They are my best audience when talking to them. I’m planning to build a tractor cause free range here is dangerous, hawks, fox & dogs.
