In the Brooder
- May 29, 2017
I have 5 bovan hen pullets that iv had for apx 3 weeks now. They should start laying in 2 weeks or so. They seem happy and comfortable. Spending time pecking outside on my grass trimmings from mowing, eating the scratch we give them once a day. They have full access to their mash pellets, grit and oyster shells. Iv expected to clean out the wood shavings by now (3 weeks) or atleast smell potent coop poop smell, but everytime I go in their coop it looks so clean. I can't tell if the poops are drying and crumbling in with the shavings or if they are eating it ... we are working on a larger exterior fully open "run". Until then I can't help but think maybe they are bored?!
