    So my hair-brained daughter never opened the chicken door this morning. The chickens were let out, but were unable to get back into the coop until we went out to lock them up and realized they were locked out. Therefore, no one could get to the nesting boxes. We searched the pen and found no eggs. What is going to happen? Are they going to become egg bound? I usually get between 5 and 7 a day from my 7 girls. Funny how I told her to go collect eggs this afternoon and she must have never went. I'm so upset right now.... :mad:

    Please tell me they are going to be okay :hit
