    This morning, while visiting the coop to drop off some canteloup and bread scraps, I noticed that eggs were half-buried in the run. I know which hen they're from because they were both jumbo brown. Is this just a sign of a lazy hen? How do I get her back in the nesting box? I have 2 boxes for 5 hens, and they usually end up using the same box. Do I need to place my golf balls back in the unused box?

    I would try the golf balls, she needs to be retrained.
