My six month old orpingtons have been in their new home for about a week and a half. Looks like about the last 4 days they have been in one of the nest boxes sitting but no eggs yet. Is this a good sign that eggs are on the way if they are at least sitting in the nest boxes? The last three to four nights they have also all been getting on the roosting poles together. The first few nights I had to put them up on the roost poles but now they know where to go so I know they aren't sitting in next box at night. Every morning I open the coop the ladies hop down off the nest poles and greet me at the door on the run. They seem to be eating and drinking quite well and the kids and I give them some treats throughout the day. black oil sunflower, scratch, and veggie scraps are on the menu for treats! A couple birds are eating scratch out of my hand so they seem comfortable. I'm just hoping it wont be spring before I see an egg but if it takes that long, I guess I can say I let them lay on their own terms. As if I have a choice!!!
