My Cayuga girls prefer to make their own beautiful nests instead of using the nest boxes and will always lay their eggs then pull a bit of straw over the top of the nest to hide them.

I once left them in there for 10 days but they still wouldn't brood them. When I finally went inside to pull the eggs from the nest they got very concerned and paced outside the door. When I left the went in, looked at they empty nest and looked at each other over and over. So now I let the eggs sit out there for about 3 days at a time to give them the opportunity but they don't want to brood right now
Maybe next season.
