Hello new member was wondering how to get my chickens to lay eggs in the coop house they free range
Hi and welcome to BYC
You will likely have to keep them confined for a while until they feel most comfortable laying in the boxes. This may mean you will need a run as well, at least until they are trained to use the boxes.
Thanks that is what I thought

Hello and welcome to BYC!
Welcome to BYC!
Hi Lynda very nice to meet you. Hope you enjoy Backyard chickens as much as we do. I would also suggest you put golf balls in the nest post to give them an idea where they should lay.
They were raised in coop and free ranging about a month before laying. They never laI'd any eggs in coop.
Hello!!Welcome to BYC!
x2 on the confining your birds to the coop for a few days with golf balls or plastic eggs in the nesting boxes. You could also try leaving them in the coop later in the morning until most of them have laid their eggs.
What breed of chickens do you have?
Thanks for joining us, it's nice to have you here!
