I bught a pair of mandarins this past summer and they are supposed to be a year old this spring. I have a nest box in their pen but she(the hen) hasn't really showed any interest in the box. About a week ago I found a busted egg on the ground in the pen, so I was hoping she was going to start nesting, but she still hasn't layed any more eggs. How long does it take for them to lay a whole clutch? And how can I get her to nest in the box? Any info or help will be great. Thanks!
