I have read the past discussions on this subject and have added fluffy pine shavings, fake ceramic real looking eggs, added nest curtains..but I have two 20 wk old BR just started laying and not using the luxurious externally opening nest boxes- one has laid 6 eggs in her first week on the coop sand floor and one other laid one today in the run - also a sand floor- under their hanging water fount. The nests were in place for several weeks, and all 6 of my gals have shown interest in the nests. But now laying is starting, and they just don't understand the program! Their home is an all- in- one raised coop with covered run and they are not free ranging. It is not possible to lock them in a nest or move to a nest at "the moment". I placed an obstacle in the coop for Ms Dottie-laid 6 out of 7 days-, and her last egg was just next to the obstacle. I don't know who layer # 2 was, but think it was Road Runner who sat a pretend laying just yesterday in one of the nests but dropped it under the fount some time this am. ANYONE..ANY NEW SUGGESTIONS. OR SHOULD I JUST GIVE THEM MORE TIME???
