    My coop has a 4ft long community nest box. I have six chickens, only two of which are laying, and they both lay right next to two golf balls I put in there to help them know where to lay. That's in the back corner of the right hand side. So this morning, I moved the golf balls all the way to the other side to see if they'd lay over there. When I came home, I found the two eggs in the right corner as usual...as well as the two golf balls! One of them pushed those things 4 feet to get them back where they "belong." :lol:

    Who knew chickens golfed. Time to do some experiments. What happens when you put one egg on each side.

    Good idea! I'll try that tomorrow. I'll be home all day, so maybe I'll catch the action. :D
