Just to let you no i had never had chickens before. :D Okay so when you move your chicks into the coop can you put the nest boxes in there right away or not? Why if you can't??

My coops were built with the nest boxes in them right away and all the chicks have always stayed out of the nestboxes until egg laying age. Id block them up only if you notice they are sleeping in them.
why not, just provide some prevention from having the nest box as sleeping place. Make good roosting a little far from nest box, if the nestbox have roof, make the roof placed like 45 angle to prevent flock from using them as roosting place. :)
