Has anyone had issues with hens not laying their eggs in open air non-dark nesting boxes?

Will be some darkness from the roof but plan to leave all sides open to combat the brutal Summer heat.
i have some dark brown paint left over & i plan to paint the inside of my nest boxes so the hens think it's a really dark place.

just make sure you use latex paint if you do this though & also make sure it's 100% dry too (fumes)

good luck
