Egyptian Fayoumis Not Laying ?

My 18 week old Egyptian Fayoumis, who we have determined on this forum is a girl, has not produced any eggs that I know of yet..... Although they seem to make nests in the straw under their hen house, I have never seen any of my birds in the nesting box. The roof to the hen house allows natural light in, should it be dark ?

I keep the three of them in the coop until just past noon, then they have the run of the back-yard, not a big yard, have not seen them nesting out there. If they were eating the eggs, would I see the remnants of shells ?

Thanks- First time Chicken keeper

My first to lay was 17 weeks and the last was 27 weeks. Mine were from the same hatch. Some have posted that theirs didn't lay until 30 weeks.
