Digging around is a very good indication that she is preparing to lay any day now. She may be digging around trying to find a spot that she finds suitable. Some Uros can be fussy about where they lay.
Try piling up a mound of damp sand (at least 7 inches) in the corner of the nest box and pack it down. Dig out a burrow/hole with your hand, large enough for her to get into and be able to turn around and lay her eggs. This should provide an appealing egg-laying spot for her. If you haven’t already, you may want to separate the male from the female while she is preparing to lay. The male can be very distracting & disruptive to her when she is trying to take care of her “business”.

Make sure when she does lay, you have a bowl of water ready for her to drink. They get VERY thirsty after all that hard work and can get dehydrated quickly. :)
