Location, Location, Location
As a constant reminder for the ladies to lay eggs in a regular location, I placed a plastic egg in the nesting box. Although they have been quite consistent in laying eggs in it previously, occasionally I would find an egg under some bush. This morning, the Brown Leghorn hen laid a 6.5cm long white egg next to the blue fake one! )About four days per week, the Rhode Island Red hen lays 5.5cm long brown eggs.)
I am looking into getting a new nesting box to discourage mites and lice from hiding in it. Will be looking around online and at the feed store to see what options are available.
