In the Brooder
- Apr 12, 2016
I have a few hens that are squatting when I approach them I know this means they are close to laying.. My question is because they free range and have a few places they like to get cozy and relax in, how likely is it they will start laying around the property vs in the nest boxes in the coop? They used to sleep in the best boxes until I put roosts up now they have no interest in the boxes. They are lined with lots of straw and have a fake egg or rock in each... I have a lot of property and would rather not walking around searching for eggs!
