I have just gotten my flock of hens about a week ago and they have adjusted well now. They go in and out of the coop, at night they hop up on the roost to sleep and just peck around all day. My question is I figured that they might be curious and check out the nest boxes even though they are probably about 2-4 weeks away from laying eggs. I have golf balls in there just to stimulate them to take a look, but I can see no sign of them getting up into them and seeing whats in them. They do seem curious when I open the lid to it which I have on the outside of the pen area of the coop. Like I said I guess I just figured they'd want to explore and check it out, and also want to see if maybe I should pick them up and put them on the perch to get into them or not. Let me know what you think, unsure if they will figure out on there own or should I teach them what they are by putting them up by them. I will say I'm am glad they aren't sleeping there, they do seem happy with the roost.
