My chickens turned 18 weeks about a week and a half ago we set out a nesting box to start. My chickens will go in but they won't lay an egg. I don't know if maybe they are too young or if I am doing something wrong. Help please.

18 weeks is too young. I would even consider 20-22 early for most breeds.

Increase the protein content of your feed to 18%
Wait until they are 6/7 months old.
Ensure they are adequately heated if you experience snow / cold temps.
