My Girls will not use the nesting box - Page 3

post #21 of 22
So we did not open the coop today. No sign of using the nest boxes and also not egg today. Is that usual? They are all up on their roost now and I don't think anyone will lay overnight will they? They have kicked around the pine shavings on the floor a lot today. One corner they had scratched out all the shavings but now it is filled back in. There is the slight chance that one layed but the egg got covered. I really can't tell because that corner is the far corner away from the door and if I try to get to it they will probably try to get out.
Anyway, can their laying cycle be interrupted by keeping them coooped up?

You are fine. They don't lay everyday at first. Give them a few days.
