Hi all ... I am still new to BYC rising, but having a great time! I have five girls currently - 2 young Barred Rock hens, just starting to lay and three others - two RIR and one Golden Cross who are about 1.5 years old. I have one nesting box for the five of them and I am getting one egg a day - pretty consistantly for about two weeks now. My question is whether I should have TWO nesting boxes for five hens and whether that would help to encourage more than one lady to lay each day? As a side note - I notice the laying TIME is very consistent - When I open up the coop each morning around 6:30 there is no egg - but if I come back between 8:30 and 9:00 I will find an egg. Almost like they are on a timer! lol.
