    I just got a new and very improved coop for my one chicken (long story but I'll be getting more in the next couple weeks) anyways, I still have my old coop in the run area and my Easter Egger, Coco, refuses to lay eggs in the new coop. She stands at the door every morning begging to get out so I let her out and she runs into the old coop to lay her eggs. I do plan on getting rid of the older coop but how can I make her more comfortable in the new one aside from just removing the old coop?

    No other way than removing the old coop and locking her in the new one.
