I'm new to raising chickens and one of my girls has decided not to use the brand new coop I built for them when laying her eggs. I have two questions 1. The eggs I found are no more than a week old and are dry and clean. Are they still good? Temps have been in the upper 70's during the day 2. How do I get her to lay in the nest boxes? I let them free range in my back yard and it seems a bit cruel to lock her up in the coop for days. I found her getting ready to lay and moved her to the nest boxes where she did lay her egg. I also torn down the area where she was, just to find the eggs in a new location today?
