    So i started letting my girls out longer during the day because i wanted them to free range more, i'm not sure what started it but they decided to lay their eggs all over the yard! I have to go searching for the eggs every day when i get home now. How can i get them to lay in the boxes again? I dont want to lock them up if i dont have to, but i might have to if they keep this up.

    My kids would love the challenge and it would give them something to keep them busy... where do you live... lol j/k You should round up some kids and tell them to hunt the eggs.

    I occasionally find one in the run. But even though they have a nest box.. they wont use it. At least it seems like they have certain places they lay. Except when they just CAN'T make it back in in time
