Hello, I'm brand new to raising chickens. Due to health issues I can no longer eat commercial eggs and organic eggs around where I live are way too expensive. So, I started my small coop with five hens. They are only about 12 weeks old. Just moved them out of their brooder to their main coop. I know that I will not be getting eggs until late summer or fall. (Just in time for the winter production to slowdown). My young ladies are afraid not the nesting boxes and would rather lay in the dirt by the waterers. I have tried feathering and use the same material that was in their brooder. Any ideas for this beginner?
