Our coop has a dirt floor, nesting boxes attached to the wall below the perch and a few plants growing inside for the girls to pick at or hide in. My problem is that they prefer to laying in the dirt. I've blocked their favorite places to try and convince them to move to the nesting boxes, but instead they've chosen the nesting box that hasn't yet been attached to the wall. It doesn't matter where I move it inside the coop, they follow it. I'm thinking that if I attach it along the side with the others, they'll likely start laying in the dirt again. Neither of them could care less for the golf ball trick. Should I lower the height of the other boxes? Then don't have a problem getting into them, but they have no interest in them aside from pulling out the hay.
