No real concern, but I have two (I think) girls who go into the hutch and lay their eggs, but they lay them on the floor rather than one of the nesting boxes we have for them to use. Everyone else has figured it out. They are newly laying, within the last 3 or 4 weeks.

They may move to the boxes when they feel more secure.

Then again, they may not. I collect an egg here everyday from this sneaky Icelandic hen:

OMG Thats the same place 3 of mine lay. First time scared the crap out of me when the bag started moving.

It's funny, this shelf is about 4 feet off the ground with screening in front of it. The top is storage and underneath is for broodies/babies/growout/whatever. She's the first one to get around the barrier.
