So, DH and I made a cute little coup for our girls in hopes they would enjoy laying their eggs in there. There are 3 separate nesting boxes. I took the advice that I have read on here and put 2 golf balls in 2 of the nesting boxes and since I ran out of those I found a blue plastic egg from Easter and put that in the 3rd box. They will not lay in the boxes with the golf balls. They sit up in there and like to poop But.. with the blue egg in the box they will ALL (which is only 3 of them) will nest and lay in the same box. I really wish they occupied all the nesting boxes instead of all taking turns. Crazy chickens!
