Than answer is you check for hidden nests. I do check, or I DID a few times. Then thismorning I was in the chick room (expansion when I got the new chicks. Now open for anyone that wants to go in there) looking at where I was going to put the new nest boxes. I turned, checked food/ water supply, talked to the chick in there, got up, and froze. Am I seeing what I think I am seeing? NAAAAH!! So I came in the house to get the camera.
Apparently I was right about this room being the best place for nest boxes. It is dark, warmer in the winter, cleaner, and quiet. Unfortunately, that is not the corner the boxes are going in.
I last checked for eggs in this area about two days ago. Ten eggs (plus two in the box) for 5 layers.
Okay, it has been longer. It is killing me not knowing HOW long! I want to know how many eggs I am getting /day!
