i have 2 silkie hens and a silkie roo. i put a nesting box in thier pen but they don't lay in it. just on the ground. they have seen the other hens lay in it and i have put eggs in it but they don't lay in the nesting box. and then they go and peck thier eggs. its very annoying because i need those eggs for breeding! i can never get to the eggs quick enough. i really need help. i need some silkie chicks to help with my breeding but i can't do that if i don't have any eggs to use!
