Scoop in the Coop: Nesting Box Issues

The final part of the video that H2 shot, it shows how a chicken wanting to lay an egg approaches a full nesting box.

My eight Rhode Island Reds have been laying for 7 weeks now.  I'm happy with the number and size of their eggs; I'd also encourage anyone thinking about raising backyard chickens to seriously consider the breed.  They've been a wonder, at times, to behold.  I'm just trying to get a handle on the ba-gawking.

This just proves what I think... You can lead a chicken to the nesting box, but you can't make her lay and egg! :P
