with bark so is there a way I can persuade the female to lay eggs in the box?


She'll lay where she wants to lay & where she feels most safe and comfortable.
I'd try and put a lid/cover on the lay box, that may persuade her to go in there if she feels safe.
Also if you have anything in with her I suggest you remove them while she lays and recovers.
