I have just gotten my first egg on Monday and another on Wednesday, exactly 23 weeks after my mixed flock was born. I have 6 birds, 2 BO's, 2 BR's, 1 RIR and 1 polish. I'm not sure who laid the first eggs, but that doesn't matter to me. I know they'll all get to it when they're ready.
So far, both eggs have been laid on the floor. Not a big deal, I figure that sooner or later they'll figure out what the nest boxes are for. I have showed them the boxes by actually putting each bird in a box. I'm not sure if that helps or not but I thought I'd give it a try.
I'm kinda new to this, am I on the right track?
