Oh my, i wasn't expecting this so soon. My girls are only 19 weeks. i was getting a little worried about one of them. i thought i had weeded out all the roosters (they made themselves pretty apparent). But one of my little black silkies has been developing little red wattles. So i was out in the pen watching everyone. Went to pick up this little girl, Dusty, and she squatted right down for me! So i guess eggs are coming soon. Only thing is, i am not so clear on what to do for a nesting box. Do they like a box low to the ground, or surrounded by something? i bought a double wooden nest box and have it on the concrete floor part of the pen. But everyone just gets in and kicks the straw out. i would be worried an egg would get kicked around. Maybe i can put the nest box inside the small rabbit hutch in the pen. They don't sleep in there. Wow, i am so excited! How dinky are these eggs gonna be?
