    I have beautiful girls. 2 are laying and the other who is not trashes the coop! She removes all bedding from the nesting boxes and dislodges the roosting bars! Some serious noises come from the coop when she does this. Does anyone know why she's doing this?

    very jealous hen ? you will need to tie down the roost better so she wont do that again. as for her taking stuff out of nest, she is bored. put some hay or straw out side and let her play in it. maybe let her eat corn on cob to keep her mind off !
