I posted a week ago about my girls not seeming to have any interest in their nesting boxes. Last night I went to put them to bed and found 2 eggs on the coop floor. I was excited to find the eggs but not on the floor! Will they eventually start laying in the boxes? They are 20 weeks old. The boxes are milk crates raised off the floor about 18 inches with pine shavings.

Quote:can you put fake eggs or golf balls in their nesting boxes? Sometimes it takes them a long time to figure out where they should lay. I still find a random egg on my floor from my older hens! As long as they aren't broke I'm happy:)
