I did put one of the ceramic eggs in their area, and within a few days Nala laid! They seemed to be huffing and puffing a lot before then.. like they could feel some change coming on. I have only had one egg outside of their spot one time, but they had just started, so it might have been an ooopsie egg!He's pretty. I like his speckled coloring.
So far, I haven't noticed any breeding in my group. One pullet/hen is the right age to lay, and the other two are a week or two behind her in age. I put a pair of ceramic eggs in the nest box so they might take the hint. One of them smeared a little dirt on a ceramic egg. Guess it looks a little more real now.
