golf balls?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

right now my lovely chickens are about 18 weeks, and i have read that this might be a little bit young for laying, but I'm a little confused about when to put the golf balls in the nesting boxes? Should i put them in once the chickens start to lay, or before? 

Thanks a ton! smile.png

I would set them in the middle of the nesting box prior to them laying.

x2  Let them see an egg like object in the nest before they get other ideas.
