So I'm new to the whole chicken thing! I have 5 Buff Orpington Hen's and 1 BO rooster. I got them when they were chicks. My question is..last night I was out in the backyard and found 2 eggs right next to each other both were soft. Is this normal for first time laying or should I get oyster shells? Also, since I found them in the yard, I put their nesting boxes in the coop right away and put two fake eggs in them. I'm wondering if they will know to lay in the boxes or not? Thanks for any advice you can give me!!
