My chickens are not laying eggs in their boxes. I never had this problem previously. The boxes are 11 inches in width and 16 inches in length. Are they too small? What is the recommended size?

Sounds like a good size to me. Do you have any golf balls you could put in them?

I have placed golf balls, and even eggs, in the boxes. They will sit in the boxes, but then will get out to lay eggs.

HOW do they DO that?

How long have they been laying?

Do the nests have covers on them...or are they just an open box?

Where are they laying their eggs? That might give you a clue as to where they feel safe enough to lay.
