ok i don't know if this question goes here or not but... here goes. My birds will be 15 weeks old tomorrow we have 12 Buff Orpington girls and 1 roo. Currently we have the (6) nest boxes blocked off with some straw so they can't sleep in there until it's time to lay....I've read on here they can start as early as 18/19 weeks up to 28 weeks. My question is.... when should we take the straw out for them so they will go in there to lay? we will be putting the straw down in the boxes for them to stay warm etc but I don't want them to 'hang out' in there. Should we start now and put some golf balls or fake eggs in there or something so they know what it's for? Or is it too early for them to get it. looking forward to the responses! thanks!
