    My white leghorns are laying in the nest. The gold laced wyandottes are laying in the middle of the run. ??? Guess I will try putting a wooden egg out there and moving it slowly to the egg box and see if this helps. Don't know what else to do. I am a new chicken mother and this is my first experience with laying pullets. Suggestions appreciated.
