    I just added 2 golden comets to my original flock of 6 hens and 1 rooster. My originals have not started laying yet but the 2 new hens started laying about 2 weeks ago. I just added them to my flock on Friday. They have laid eggs everywhere but in the nesting boxes. 2 eggs were even found outside in the run. I have golf balls in nesting boxes, but no progress. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Possibly lower the nesting boxes. A picture will give me a better idea.
