    I have a chicken that has laid 9 eggs outside the coup in some bushes. I only found them today. I put them in the coup at night so I know she hasn't been on them at night. Will they hatch? Can I move them into the coup? What to do?

    Putting lavender into the nesting boxes may just help! Lavender makes chickens feel relaxed, safe, and secure. Next time they go to lay an egg, they won't feel like the nesting boxes are not safe enough for their chicks. I hope this method helps [​IMG]
