    I have an Araucana who lays outside of the nesting box about every-other time. They free range during the day, but the rest of the flock returns to their nesting boxes to lay if they haven't by the time I let them out of their run each day. I've found nests in the woods quite often from this Araucana. Is there any way to encourage her to lay in her box?

    keep them locked up longer or for even the whole day, may take a couple of days to work but eventually it should. if you notice she is doing it again just do it over again until she gets it.
