My Buff Orps have been laying for two weeks ( not all of them but a few ) and in the beginning none of them were using the nesting boxes, I left a couple of eggs in one box hoping they would catch on. A couple of days ago I found one egg in the box with the two I left, now they seem to be catching on. Yesterday I hade 5 in one box and only 4 on the coop floor, I would say give them a little more time and see if they can get it on their own.
