So we got our chicks in the fall hoping for some spring layers. I knew we were getting close to the 5 mth mark so the other day I made sure I opened the main coop door to check for eggs. Today I forgot to. Our coop has a pull out tray and when I pulled it out to clean it I hear a crushing sound. Dog gone it! Lol Guess the EE is laying. So now the nesting boxes have been set up for business. Hope the others start laying too or don't make a mess of the nests. In the compost area.
