    Ok my hens are laying their eggs on the floor of the chicken house and it is really difficult to get the eggs under the the pallet boards. So I was wondering if anyone knew how to get them to lay in the buckets that we put in there for them. Thank you for all of the help!

    Try putting some fake eggs or golf balls in the nesting boxes. They should figure it out.
