All winter long my chickens have been trying my patience with their sleeping in the nest box antics. I do mean all winter long! Of course you never want chickens to sleep in the nest boxes because they poop in them. Poop in the nest boxes gets on the eggs which is sorta well, gross. Sleeping in the nest boxes is completely different then a broody setting on eggs in a nest box because a broody doesn’t poop. A sleeping chicken does. Yes, I know that’s weird but some things chickens do really are quite weird! I have had to deal with this problem in the past and I have several different methods that usually work.
