A couple of months back we found a chicken trying to get into the hayloft to lay her egg in an impossible to reach corner, just on the other side of the wire mesh. I mean Impossible for me to get the eggs, not for her to go in and lay! We put up this red box on the outside, about 10 feet off the ground and she managed to get up there to lay. Now that Spring is here there is a lot more egg laying going on so more demand for good spots. This ultimately leads to some fighting over the spots. The good news, instead of getting the ladder out for one egg, I am now getting two!
