My chickens are starting too lay their eggs on the floor of the coop, this behavior just started the bad been using the nesting boxes. Is this normal? Any thing I should do?

Thanks

I would make sure your nest are appealing and look safe. Photos of them can help to see if there's a problem. Make sure they are darkened and other are some ceramic eggs in some of them. Change the bedding often too as mites can build up in them, I will dust my boxes with lice powder every few months.
