    Just lately some of my chickens in the smaller coop 8x12 are pooping in the nesting boxes .... Any suggestions of how to stop that ? [​IMG]

    If they're sleeping in them, kick em out when you catch them. Place them on the roost and they can;t find their way back in the dark. Do it long enough and they'll get it. If they're pooping while laying I don;t know what to tell you...
