    I think my girls are almost ready to start laying. All they need is some more daylight I figure.

    Should I open the nest boxes that are in their hen house before they start laying? Or will this invite a mess in the nests?

    Ours were in from day one and nobody went near them until it was time to lay! Good luck! [​IMG]
