Hi everyone, I got 9 chicks the Wed after Easter this year. All is good with them thus far. We built them a coop from a shed and have followed tons of threads on here to make sure everything would be perfect! Since they are still "young" we were planning on building their nesting boxes in a few weeks, so we took a break from building. So, no nesting boxes yet, and their run isn't connected so in the mornings I open their door and they run out. Well, today I found the cutest little egg in their run in the afternoon. I was SHOCKED and very excited / proud. When I went in the coop to prep it for them for the night...checking food and water...I found another smaller egg on the floor in the shavings. OH BOY! So, now I need to get the nest boxes built in the next day or so. Do you think it is too late to teach whichever hen is laying to lay in the box and not just anywhere? I thought we still had a little time, and now here I am behind! Plus I still have to figure out how to attach the run to the shed. (The original plan didn't work in attaching so we are still at the drawing board on this one.) That said, should I leave them in the coop in the morning and put them in the run around 10 so they have time to lay? Any suggestions would help. I just hope I didn't flub this up!
