I have 25 hens, of varying ages and breeds. I have 8 nesting boxes, in a row, with curtains in front of the openings, located under the roost/poop board. I also have a kitty litter bucket nest box, off in a different corner, for a black copper marans hen who refuses to lay her eggs in the normal nests. Some are more "covered" than others, so everyone should be able to find a spot that is to their desired level of privacy. 2 of my hens, a pair of 6 month old black copper marans, have recently started laying. A couple times I have found their eggs in the same corner, kitty litter bucket the older marans hen uses. The rest of the time, I am finding their eggs in the litter on the poop board. Is there some quirky black copper marans nesting secret that isn't mentioned in all the breed references I've looked at?! I figured out how to work around my older BCM (I just put the nest box where she kept laying her eggs). But short of putting a nest box on the roost, does anyone have any ideas?
