We have 3 hens who are now 20 weeks old. The combs and wattles are nice and red and all have been doing the "submissive squat" for about a week to a week and a half. So of course we are getting excited about our first eggs! We normally let them out of the coop/run after they've eaten in the morning to wander our yard all day (coop door is open so they can access the nesting boxes if they want). Our yard isn't huge and I've been checking all their normal hang out spots, but I'm nervous they'll lay an egg/eggs somewhere in a bush and I'll miss it. If you free range, did you confine your chickens to the coop for a time until they got the hang of laying in the nesting box? (Our coop has a nice run, but I'm sure they'd rather be free to run around).
