    We had the same experience! I found a little brown egg in the coop... opposite from the nesting box and cracked. :( We are soooo excited that one of our girls is finally laying-- I hope she figures out how to do it in the box tomorrow!

    i used the trick of putting some ping pong balls in the nests and they were looking at them and you could see them thinking, it was funny. but someone started laying in there, so it works!
