Hi I have eight hens. We have a eight by five Amish coop. We also have a small rabbit hutch and a small two chicken coop in a 18x24 gated pen. All together there are five nesting boxes. We needed to remove the small rabbit hutch do to rotting. It seems it was the favorite nest for egg laying. Since we removed it about four days ago I've noticed a drop in eggs. My husband found about eight eggs in a covered tire. They free range all day and laid their eggs in a tire. They have five nesting boxes and this is what they choose? LOL Ahhh. I floated the eggs and they all sunk to the bottom without floating so they were freshly laid. What should I do?? I added fake eggs to the nest already. Should I keep them on lock down in their pen for a few days?
