    Do you have fake eggs/golf balls in the nesting boxes? Sometimes it takes them a while to get the eggs into the boxes.

    I collected 5 eggs from the washing basket in my son's room today and 1 from the rubbish bin outside and picked 3 off the coop's floor. Some of my girls decided to lay NEXT to the perfectly o.k. nest boxes so I gave up.[​IMG]
