Why are chickens so weird?????? I recently added another nestbox to my larger coop, bringing the grand total of nestboxes to 7 if you don't count the broody crate that's in use right now. That's seven nestboxes for 17 pullets and hens; two of which - my little polish and the minorca - are not yet laying. In my brahma coop I only have three nestboxes. So why, when I let all the chickens out this morning, did I see... 1. Two of the nestboxes in the larger coop with two hens a piece in them (while other boxes were unoccupied)? and 2. Three of my younger hens make a beeline for the brahma coop nestboxes?
