    Hi, I hope they start laying soon!!!!! They are coming up on 30 weeks and not a single egg!!!!! Now, onto what I saw this morning..... I have some fake eggs that normally sit in the cat litter box that my single hen likes to use to lay her eggs in. It's her favorite. Well, this morning, when I went to let them out of the coop, I noticed that all the fake eggs were moved into another nest box. Does this mean that some one or some few might be getting ready to lay?????

    My pullets start playing with the other hens' eggs just before they take the plunge. Hopefully yours will reward your patience soon. Gosh, 30 weeks [​IMG]
