    I have been finding soft eggs in the coop for a few days. Any advice as to how to fix that. Also, some girls don't want to day in the coop. I have found two nests that get laid in everyday and I am sure that another one of my hens that lay white, whick haven't been in the coup for a few days, must be laying somewhere else also. Any tips on how to get them to just lay in their boxes:D

    You should add calcium to there diet to help reduce the soft shells. For the hens that are laying outside I would keep them inside and show them the nesting boxes. You could try to put a fake egg/ golfball into the nest to show them what they are going to do in there.
