    The last few days I've noticed something odd, my white rock and my light brahma have been sharing a nesting box at the same time. There are several identical nesting boxes but all the girls prefer the same one. Typically they just take turns but for some reason they've been in there together lately. Has anyone else had this happen?

    I have a few girls that insist on being laying buddies. They cram into the same nest and chatter and coo away at each other.
