    It always is exciting!!! My chickens always laid their first couple eggs on the floor but now they are good girls and lay in the nesting boxes. :)

    Yay! you can always try putting a fake egg type thing in there to help then know were to lay. It is fairly normal for the first few eggs to be a little weird. Congratulations!
