my boxes are off the grnd diff hieghts,i did move two boxes on the grnd but they sleep in them breaking some puzzeld all the other birds i have had ,do it naturaly,ya know pick abox lay all thier eggs,then sit when they want ..??? .....scratchin my head????
Not sure what the question is????? Sounds like maybe you have some birds that don't like using the boxes???? I would take the ones you lowered and put them back up and either keep taking the eggs that are being laid on the ground and putting them in the boxes to see if they get the idea, or just gather them where they lay. I have a couple of hens that drop eggs wherever... I just pick them up when I see them

If the question was something else... please clarify
This is my most popular nesting place. It was made with a shelving unit mounted sideways, and a couple of boards to keep the straw and eggs in. The chickens don't sleep in it, it isn't even inside the coop. They all perch on a board for the night inside.


Inside the coop I also have a nesting "cave" made out of an old plastic box.


I gather eggs frequently to prevent damage.
