Ok did that also last night.

Ryan

Hopefully that will help. :)

Avoid anything that might stress her, it sounds like she might be uncomfortable. (I know experiences vary, but even my super-friendliest corns really hate being bothered, even looked at, while they're laying eggs.)

If she's in a high-traffic area you might want to move her to somewhere quieter, too. You might also want to put in more nesting boxes of different sizes with different nesting materials in them, if she still isn't going into the current nest box.

For future reference (next year, or if you have others due to lay) if she's not hanging out in the nest box a lot before she's due to lay, and especially if she's conatantly roaming the enclosure during that time, then it's a good bet she's not happy with the provided nest box. I think others mentioned to try bigger, smaller, wetter, drier, more or less space in there, etc. It should be pretty easy to find out what she prefers, and then you can stick with that for her.

(Dunno if everyone else already said that, but it never hurts to hear it again, hehe.)

Good luck, and let us know how it turns out. :)
