    My chickens seem to be laying everywhere... except my nest boxes, and they never lay in the morning.

    How can i make them lay in the nest boxes and to lay in the morning

    Have they just started laying? Sometimes it takes them a while to figure it out. If feasible, you could put a golf ball or two in the nest boxes and shut them in the coop. It's too bad they don't lay in the mornings, because you could let them out when it's all done, but unless the coop is tiny (like ours ;) it shouldn't hurt to leave them in there a day or even two till they figure it out.
