    Some of mine lay there too.

    I don't care though, as long as I keep the poop tray clean the eggs are clean too.


    You can try to make the nest boxes more attractive by making them a bit darker and adding a fake egg.

    I've had it happen too.
    Ditto on the fake eggs in the nests....or just give her time, she's in a new place.
