    I'm sending my girls outside in the playhouse during the day. The little table that is attached to the wall is down and makes just enough of a space for the girls to hide behind. That's where they are most of the time. Do they need a nest box, or is this just their way of feeling safe? I sure don't think they miss me, and are way too young to lay eggs. They didn't do this until a couple of days ago.

    Well if they have access to a run and go outside fine and when they go in the coop and stay under the table thing. I am guessing that they just like that spot most.
