I have five hens, 2 RIR and 3 Wh Leghorns. ONe leghorn has been laying for about 4 days and a RIR just started today. Now what? I have given them free choice oyster shells, food and water. I let them out of the coop in the morning about 7am. they seem to go back into the coup about 11ish to lay. we lock them up at nite after it is dark. we pick up the eggs when we get a chance. anything i am missing or should do? should i try to get the eggs as soon as they are laid or can the sit out for awhile. I read some people leave their chickens in until after they lay.
