    Found my first 2 eggs from my six Rhode IR's yesterday! So I moved the nesting boxes into the chicken tractor with one fake egg in each box. I hope they figure it out. How long does it take them to figure it out?The eggs seem small for Red's, will they get bigger as they get older? [​IMG]

    Those are just like ours! We have RI Reds and they are laying tiny eggs too. But all over the place. The hens are only just over three months so I assume they are just getting started and will get bigger later?..
