    My chicks are about 20 weeks and one of them keeps going in her nesting box but not laying.. Does this mean she is getting ready to lay her first egg? I am so excited I just hope nothing is wrong she keeps going in and out..

    Yes, soon you will get eggs....They can take a few weeks of investigating before the first egg is laid....

    Cheers!
