Hi All Hoping someone can give me some insight on the lastest chicken behavior. I live in Orlando, FL and have 3 Red Star hens approx. 2.5 years old. They appear to be molting and egg laying is almost non-existant. I am finding however that they are suddenly pooping in the nesting boxes. My boxes are not higher than the roosting bar. Could they be doing this because they think they should be laying but really only have to poop? Any insight would help...thanks!
