Nest boxes
Nest boxes are where all egg-laying magic happens. It is important that these nest boxes are in secluded areas so hens can comfortably sit for a few minutes before they're ready to join the rest of the roost. Once you've found some secluded, dark spots for your nest boxes, you can fill them with straw, which will cushion eggs and bounce back once you remove the eggs. Absorbency isn't an issue in nest boxes bedding, as there are no fluids associated with laying, unless an egg breaks. You can also install nest boxes with a lid to the exterior. It makes harvesting eggs easier and less disturbing for chickens inside the coop.
