Two of my chickens are right around 4 months old (a Black Star and an Ancona) and I am anxiously awaiting my first egg. I have tried showing them the nesting box in their coop, but they are not interested. They don't use their roosts, either. So I will be surprised if the eggs wind up in the nesting box. So where should I be looking for them? When they are out free-ranging, they spend a lot of time hunkered down under a camellia bush. In the run, they hang out under the coop when it's hot. I don't want to miss the first one!
