Are they crouching yet? If they're not, I don't think you have to worry but once they do, you can be more aware of where they might lay.


Once they start crouching, you can encourage them to lay by putting a golfball or a ceramic egg in the nestbox.


I got a first egg laid in the run, but all subsequent ones have been in the nestbox.


They lay at any time during the day. I think it takes about 25-26 hours to make an egg so it'll be slightly later each day until they (possibly) have a day off. (I say "possibly" as my Maisie hasn't had a day off for 31 days :shock: .)
