Hi All, This is my first time raising chickens thus my first time with trying to get the hens to lay in the boxes. I have looked at other posts and tried some of the suggestions I found there. - Fake eggs in the box - clean laying area - straw in the box/wood shavings in the box - an enclosed box - an open box - and so on and so on. Ok, I have tried everything still the girls refuse to use the laying box. I use the 5 Gal buckets because I heard that the hens like the privacy that it offers. They were at first using them just fine but now they like to lay on the other side of the coop where it is hard to get too. Can anyone tell me how I can get the girls to use the laying boxes again?? I have tried all that I know to do. thanks.
