    Ok, now this is kinda weird. I have 4 Arucana Hens, 2 Comet Hens & 1 Jersey Giant Rooster. Every few days when I check the coop for feed & water, I notice that the floor & the nesting boxes (two top ones) are soaking wet. So much so that the shavings are almost like a paste! Some of the blue eggs are in the boxes while some may be on the floor. They are all usually covered in the soaking wet shavings. I've had only Comets before and never had any occurances like this. I don't think its their water, because there is still plenty in the waterer. But maybe they are splashing the water out of the waterer? But how could the top nesting boxes get soaked? Any ideas?????

    Thanks!

    SOB:D
