The first hen who was laying doesn't do it in the nesting boxes. She does it in the shavings in the coop. So I have to sift through it daily to look for eggs. I don't want to do that. I've been placing the eggs in various boxes and leaving them in there for a few days, still eggs in the shavings. Should I take out all but a little of the shavings to really discourage it? the nesting boxes are lined with carpet, a method I've used before with success.
