    I had posted about my White Leghorns laying eggs but not in nest boxes. Someone suggested leaving them locked in coop (they usually free range) for a day or 2; I did that and let them out about 4 pm as they are done laying by then and they went 9 for 9 on eggs AND all eggs were in nest boxes. I will do the same thing today and then try letting them free range as usual and see what happens.

    Thanks to all for your advice.

    Once they get in the habit of laying somewhere, they'll do their darndest to get back there when it's time.
