    I've got 5 pens raised, and attached to a shed. They are each the same size, and I have 1 trio in 2 pens and 2 trios in the other 3. Are my nest boxes adequate? Do they need to be seperated by cardboard so they can't see the others? I've not got any eggs and I've seen them bredding for a few days now, please, any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know the answer to your question but thought I'd say that you have a very nice setup.

    if you can get them to use nest boxes lucky you, my bob's won't use them. your cage setup looks great, it takes at least two to three weeks of breeding to get eggs, also you need a couple of warm days to get them to start.

    So, they still may come? I didn't know if them seeing the others could have anything to do with it or not.
