    Thanks for all your help. Michael, I did what you said about closing off the nest from them and today we got two eggs in the bottom of the coop. Tomorrow morning I will turn the nesting box around so they can get in it and see what happens.

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    Be sure to put fake eggs in the nest. This will show them where to lay.

    Great. Hopefully they will sleep on the roosting bars from now on. Mountain Peeps suggestion about putting fake eggs in the nest box is a good one. I always have a couple of fake eggs in my tunnel nests. Good luck.
