    Ok, we have one silly lady who keeps laying in the dirt under the coop steeps. To my understudying, these eggs are not the safest to eat. We have 2 boxes for 6hens, which I think it enough. We have tried covering back in the hole she made to lay in,but she just digs it back. All the others lay in the boxes fine.

    We are also getting ready to move in 6days, so I don't plan on tackling the problem until then. Any advice??

    Well they are good to eat as long as they don't have any cracks in the eggs.
