Hello from Oklahoma.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I bought my baby chicks the Friday before Mother's Day 2015. We had four but lost one due to an accident. Not knowing what we were doing, we didn't start getting eggs until February 10th. I didn't know that where they roost and where they nest are different places. Oops. I want to enlarge my flock this year.

 

 

 

 

The darkest back on is Alucard. We lost her in February.

My girls names are: Celestia, Nightmare Moon, Torchic and we lost Alucard. That's right they are from My Little Pony, Pokeman, and Hellsing.

Do you have a coop for your birds? It's been my experience the chickens roost and lay in the nesting boxes that are in the coop.

 

I'm not sure I understand your set up?

Yes we have a coop. Nothing fancy, but it keeps them safe. They were roosting but not laying. After I made some changes and added just a place to lay is when they did start laying.
