So its the end of the first week with our new flock. They all have different personalities and they're all pretty friendly. Even the head hen, Rose, is taking scratch from my hand along with the rooster! Heather, the one who has been making little makeshift nests everywhere had 3 going, so we removed the straw off of the floor to try to encourage her to use a nest box. She finally got in and sat for a few hours but no egg. At least she knows where it is. And my question tonight is we have 1 hen who is a little bit smaller than the rest and seems like a runt. She eats great and acts fine. Is there a specific way to get some weight on her a little quicker? And another question is when we do see that 1st egg, do we snatch it up or leave it for a little while?
