I'm so excited! We got our first egg 2 days ago. Our girls are only 16 weeks old. We haven't even gotten the dividers in our nesting boxes yet because we thought we had a couple more weeks. So that's on the to do list this weekend. Still waiting for our 2nd one. Any ideas on when that could be?

I think it depends on the chicken breed on how fast they lay. Mine are leghorns and they usually lay once a day. I've been getting 6 a day. For some reason all 6 of ours use the same box.

Thanks! We ended up getting another one 3 days later (the 13th) then 1 on the 14th, 16th and 2 today!! The last 3 have all been in the nesting box. It's fun going out to check every day.

Typical......sometimes that can be a problem, sometimes it is not.
Put some fake eggs/golf balls in some of the other nests to 'spread the love'.
