    FIRST EGG!!!!!!!! what should I do now that my chickens are laying eggs? what should I put in the nesting boxes? Any feed changes? I didn't have the nesting box open to them when my chicken layed her first egg. she layed her egg in the pine shavings where they sleep. Will this be a problem in the future?

    I dont think it will be a problem, because the same thing happened to my hens. The only feed change I did was add a bit more calcium into their diet,
