Monday I discovered a clutch of 14 eggs (out of 5 possible hens) under the nest box behind a half full feed bag I put there two weeks ago. I wondered why I was getting 1 to none eggs/day! I pulled out the feedbag and smoothed the area. Tuesday my husband collected 5 eggs (one was a first welsummer egg) from UNDER the nest box again. The nesting box is a community box that they have been laying in since they started laying in July. It's clean and nice. The only thing that has changed is that the weather has gotten much colder and they have had a bit less free ranging due to snow & single digit wind chills. The coop is an 8x10 amish shed with a 10x10 run attached. Plenty of room for 12 chickens. Any ideas how I could get them back in the box - the eggs are poopy and harder to collect!
