I have three Delaware pullets that are 25 weeks old now. Two have just started to squat in the past week, but no eggs yet. I put their nestbox in the coop a little over 3 weeks ago and they have ignored it until a few days ago. Yesterday and today, I've found poop in the nestbox when I got off work (roughly around 1:30 - 2 in the afternoon) and checked (in hopes of eggs). Are they just finding this a wonderful place to start pooping in? Or are they laying in the nestbox as practice and just happen to poop too?
