I have 17 laying hens and I just moved them to the smaller coop. But prior to yesterday, they had 20 nests to choose from on 3 walls in a barn that was clearly built for many more chickens. Anyway, they pick 2 or 3 nests each day and lay ALL their eggs in those nests. They'll cram 2 or 3 in a nest at a time just so they can lay their eggs together. And it's not always the same 2 or 3 nests, they switch it up everyday so it can't be that they favor one nest over another. I just don't quite get it. Well of course if they lay all their eggs together, then one hen gets to sit on a whole assortment. But still...it's weird.
