I have two Silkies, one of whom has recently started laying (the other of whom I can't decide if it's a pullet or roo, but I digress...). I designed my small coop specifically for them, so the nestbox area is located at floor level; however, my hen will not lay in the nestbox. In fact, she seems to lay all over the place, both inside and outside. Based on the location of the inside eggs, it looks like she's sitting down right outside the nestbox area and laying there for the most part. Does anyone have any advice for getting a Silkie to use a nestbox? Is it even possible? Thanks!
