Any suggestions/advice please. I have 3 australorps who are all laying well at the moment BUT one is laying her eggs from the perch and not in the nest box. It has happened 3 days in a row and two had smashed. I have now lifted up their poop tray a bit higher by putting it on top of a box and put some shredded newspaper in it to soften the fall and I was lucky enough to save the egg from being broken this morning. I have two (what I hope are good sized nest boxes) and they seem to only use one box anyway. I don't tend to let them out before about 7.30am because I live in suburbia and I try to keep their egg songs a bit muffled so as not to wake up my neighbours tooooo early. A photo of my nest boxes are in my page if that helps. Thank you.
