The Egg Mystery-Day 2

Maybe the hens need new bedding. I like freshly-laundered, air-dried sheets. Shouldn't they?

The nesting boxes are lined with wood shavings. Over time, the shavings collect dirt and crumble.

I spent Saturday afternoon cleaning out the chicken house and spreading new bedding on the floor and in the nesting box.

When finished, the chicken house smelled like a pine forest on a spring day.

The nesting boxes were filled with fluffy shavings, awaiting hens. Surely, they'd lay eggs now.

Again this morning, I locked the chickens in the hen house and checked it frequently.

By noon, there was no hen butt imprints in the freshly-fluffed nest boxes. I'm debating my next step.
