well, we're at 19 weeks and not a single egg! i put a golf ball in the nest. every morning when i check, the golf ball is not only out of the nest, but across the coop and down the ramp. it's either their way of telling me that they have no intention of giving me eggs, or they're playing a couple of holes before dawn! i bought 2 wooden "eggs" yesterday, changed the nest bedding from shaved pine to hay. we'll see what they think of those!
