Our chook/s are not laying in the box (lawn mower cathcher), they are just laying wherever they feel like it, so it is like an easter egg hunt every evening after work.
They also like to scatch the straw out of the cathcer as well.
Chooks like a darker part of the shed to lay and out of the “main traffic route” also put a ceramic egg (or even a golf ball will do) in the laying boxes to encourage them
My chooks lay in the same corner of their house, I haven’t got a box in there at all , which is in the back corner of the pen. I have placed a golf ball in that corner and once they get the hang of it..they all lay in the same place everyday !
I used the good old golf ball trick as well and it did the job.
