I got my chickens about a week ago, and they are not laying. The guy I bought them off of had them in a small cage, just enough room to turn around. Although my coop and run are kinda small, it is like a mansion to them. The first night they slept on the floor, the second night on the lower roost. Now they roost on the highest one. My nesting boxes are a foot off the ground. At first they didn't have anything to do with them, but now I can tell they at least get in them. I put a golf ball in one and they just push it out. Everyone I talk to just tells me to give them time, but I'm not a patient person. Am I looking at 2 weeks?......A month??? I don't have any idea. I finally talked my wife into getting chickens on account of the fresh eggs, but after a week, nothing!! Now I'm starting to think that this was a bad Idea.
