I have recently dove into the chicken ownership portion of my second childhood. I purchased 10 red star hens, 13 weeks old, about 4 weeks ago. I did not have my coop ready, so my neighbor let me put them in his empty coop. After about 3 weeks these guys gave me my first egg...woohoo...I made an omelet. My coop was completed, we moved them, they seem to be happy campers. I have been getting 2 eggs a day since I moved them. My problem....there was no nesting box in my buddy's coop, the little ladies just drop on the scratched up dirt floor. When they were moved to the new coop, I had not completed my nesting box and they still dropped them things on the ground...now I can not get them to lay the eggs in the new nesting box. Yes, I have put in a couple of fake eggs. HELP!!
