    My girls came home with me on the 27th of April, they were a few days old i was told. A few weeks ago i found what looked like a small amount of what looked egg white dripping down the side of a chair they like to perch on. Then today, I went out and there was some poop with what looked like egg white with it. I think they are about 14 or so weeks old. Does this mean I should get out the nest box and start my egg watch? I do not know which one of the girls did this.
