Empty nest syndrome

empty nest syndrome in a chicken coop at sunset in the fall of 2010

It's been 2 weeks since I installed the outdoor nest box in the chicken pasture and the lack of even one egg proves how unpopular this location is for egg laying.

I think it was too much in the open, which is why I moved it inside just above the entrance.

Now it seems to be good enough for at least one hen, but still someone within the flock insists on laying her egg on the straw floor.
