Hi all! About a week ago I cleaned out my whole coop and replaced all the roosts. (roost mites) I put everything back in (almost) exactly as it had been, except I used sand for covering the whole floor, and lowered the roosts about 8 inches. Now suddenly several of my hens have started laying eggs in the goats hay manger, behind the hay bails in the barn, and who knows where else. I probably haven't found them all. Most of them are still laying in the nest boxes, which weren't changed at all, just cleaned out and new hay put in, but what's up with these 4 or 5 hens? Why after almost a year of laying in the nest boxes would they decide to switch things up? Perhaps they're just sending me on an early Easter egg hunt? Any ideas or suggestions on how to get them back into the boxes where they belong? I was thinking about locking them all in the run and coop for a few days, but I hate to do that to them all since it's just several hens and they're use to free ranging. All advice or comments are appreciated! Thanks!
