    Hello and :welcome
    Congratulations on your new layer, there's nothing like fresh eggs straight fro the coop! Yep, sometimes the chickens will lay in pretty strange places, ours didn't grasp the concept of their nesting boxes until they were about a year old. You might need to introduce them to the boxes by placing an egg or golf ball inside so they know where they should be laying.
    Good luck, and enjoy your chickens. :D
