    That is so funny. How many hens are in that box? How big is the box.......... [​IMG] ! I have a hen that is laying eggs on top of a broody hen..... go figure that one out. [​IMG] They are FBCM hens so marking the eggs would be tough. I could do it but she only has about a week left. [​IMG] I may have to add more days to it at this rate. [​IMG] The box is only 12" x 12" or even a little less. [​IMG] Chickens are so comical....... [​IMG]

    My Coop
    I have 7 boxes in my coop they use 3. Most use 1.

    I have two other pens with three boxes each. They always lay in the same box.
