Omgoodness... The girls are all (mostly 4/5) happy layers now- we only get eggs in the nestboxes- so I figured I could remove the golf balls... Well my goodness You would've thought I'd turned the world upsidedown! They all protested loudly- for days! I finally thought- ya know- I bet they miss their golf balls?!? Found two shiny new ones, plopped one in each box, and voila! My honkiest honker is now settled in on her "egg" and waiting patiently to lay her very own. What kooks. Anybody else have this happen??? Or are mine "special?"
