    On Thursday I put these inserts into my nests boxes after having many egg eaters?? Could of been the 2 turkeys but am not sure (they are no longer in the house). So far no one wants to lay in them, they are using the other nest boxes that they NEVER used before. Should I close up the ones they are using now to hopefully make them lay in these or ?? any suggestions

    i would close up the other spaces and not give them another option but to lay in the new one.
