I just finished building a bigger, roomier coop for my 4 hens. They seem to like it, except two of them (my banties) still want their old nesting box. I had the old one shut up tight today and put their plastic nest eggs in their new nest boxes, with some new soft bedding. All they could do is walk around their old coop (an A-frame "catawba" style), trying to get in. Finally I let them and they laid. My question is, should I keep the old coop locked upor should I try taking all the old bedding out and open the egg door (so it's no longer "private"), and maybe even putting a few bricks or stones where there used to be soft bedding? They're all used to free ranging in my backyard, but I'm considering keeping them in their 4x8 run for a day (which may happen anyway, a big rain storm is coming tomorrow night.) Any advice is welcomed.
