We just recently put the nesting boxes on the outside of the coop. I was a little upset that I was going to lose 2 boxes. I had 8 for 11 golden comets. I now have 6 nesting boxes. This morning I went to gather my eggs. I peeked through the window to make sure nobody was on the nest. I forgot to mention I was a little late gathering my eggs. So the girls should have been done by now. I opened the lid to the boxes and in one nest I find 8 eggs and one of my hens acting like she was looking for a place to sit down! She got out of the nest I gathered the eggs. 2 in one nest and 8 in the other. I gave my hen about 45 minutes and went out and got 1 more egg out of the nest that had 8 in it. I can't figure it out. Why are they using the same box? Most of the time I find up to 5 in one box but this is the first time I have found 9 in the same box! At least they aren't hiding them from me anymore!
