So I'm getting ever so increasingly excited as the days go on! My girls will be 18 weeks old tomorrow and I think my Speckled Sussex is getting ready to start laying. I've caught her building a "nest spot" in the corner of the coop even though the next box is open. I'm trying to nip this in the bud right now, so I've put a bucket in that corner upside down. Of course this was after breaking up the nest spot several times today. When I put the bucket in there she became quite ticked off at me and let me have it, all vocal abuse that is lol. What are some ways that I can gently show her the nest box? I've already helped her into there, and she doesn't really care for it, per se. I even put a golf ball in there that she checked out. Hopefully she realizes that is where she needs to lay her first egg....but only time will tell!
