My veiled laid the day after i put in the bin. as soon as i saw her roaming around the bottom of the enclosure, i put in the bucket (home depot orange buckets) filled with 12-15 inches of moist soil. Maybe your laying bin isnt deep enough.

Sometimes they dig pilot holes until they find the perfect conditions in order to lay their eggs. Also, some take 20 days after mating to lay, while others can go up to 40.

Has she seen you peeking? My girl saw me but kept going and laid all her eggs. It took her two days in total one hole she abandoned after a day, and the next day she dug and laid.
