Today was the first day I discovered that my 21 week old White Rocks started laying eggs. The first ones were under my girl in one of the nesting boxes (good girl!), but then I found one of my other girls had laid 3 eggs under my deck! I have a total of 23 chickens (not all WRs), and although I lock them up in the coup every night, I like to let them roam around my 3 acre yard during the day. I am wondering if anyone knows how I can train them to lay in the nesting boxes so that we don't have to go on daily 'egg hunts'? I was thinking about keeping my oldest girls that are the ones laying locked in the coup and run for a few days so that they will hopefully get into the habit of laying in the boxes. Is this a possibility, or just a dream?
