I missed my first egg!! As I was switching around cars this morning (I took my husband's truck in), I noticed 3 of our 4 birds hanging around the driveway and by this wooden crate (I can't remember what its called but the things that places put merchandise on and lift with a forklift) but under the crate thingy was the 4th chicken - my silkie hen. She didn't move when I tried to pet her (though she is friendly and will let me pick her up she usually does put up some kind of resistance first). I told my DH when I went in to get the kids that he might want to check under there for eggs. and sure enough there were 3 eggs!! I have no idea when she layed the first one. This leads me to a question. Now that the coop is ready for the chickens, how do I get her to lay in the coop/nesting boxes? I wasn't too worried about this before when I didn't think we were getting eggs but I don't want to have to search everywhere I've seen the chickens for eggs. i wonder if there are others we don't know about.
