i have had to be working in the coop and pen with my new layers, too. They actually don't seem to be bothered with the hammering and drilling. They were curious at first, then ignored me and went about their business.

I think it depends on the birds, some freak out over tiny changes and others just go with the flow. Mine haven't seemed bothered by anything new I've done (egg-laying wise, that is. They're plenty nervous about new situations). You'll have to see how your girls do through experience.

Depends on the bird. My BO when I picked her up actually gave me an egg in the car. I did a whole lot of building/landscaping around her. In almost 4 months she has only not given me an egg 3 times.....one of these times I was using a chainsaw/regular saw from 7AM to about 9PM....nobody gave me an egg that day! My EE won't lay with any disturbance at all...both in same pen.
