They used to lay in the nesting box but they have just stopped. Only one is laying in the nesting box and we have fake eggs in there 24/7.

Maybe try adding more light to the coop, assuming your nest boxes are covered. Most of the time, chickens prefer a dark place to lay. My father has commercial breeder houses and that is how he combated ground eggs.
