Hello, I did a search first to see if there was any advice about this, but nothing quite fit. I have five hens, three Australorps and two Wyandottes. They have been laying well for about two months very regularly. At first they lay in the corners of the coop. I kept looking in my nest box and one day realized there were six eggs in the far corner. I tried putting an egg in the nest box and they rolled it back to the corner. I filled the corners with a bucket, and bricks and they would lay there for several days and then all of a sudden there would be one in the coop. One time it was right in front of the nest boxes. I moved a brick there. They have been laying again in the nest boxes for a week now, but today the one egg I got was next to the bucket in the corner. They do lay in both nest boxes. There were three in one of the boxes yesterday. I put shavings in the boxes. I have not tried straw. Any suggestions?
