    We have been seeing the signs but finaly we got not one but two perfect small eggs we believe from our columbian's as they were the ones making a nest in the nesting box... of course, they lay them on the floor though [​IMG]...

    Here is a picture of them with a large commercial egg between.

    And all by themselves...

    Congratulations! And there a good size for first eggs!
    Erm about laying on the floor confusing if your saying there not laying in the box put a golf ball or a fake egg(usually can buy them at a feed store for real cheap) And that tells them where they should lay them.

    had golf balls in their nest for a couple of weeks.... I just went out when hearing the egg song and put two golf balls in the nest she is makng.. she hopped in and started laying in the box. I thing at least one has clued up so the second is sure to follow.

    BTW.... they were very good eggs! [​IMG]
