    5 out of 10 of my hens have just turned 5 months old. I do not have nesting boxes in the coop yet. Should I go ahead and put them in? I have not received any eggs yet. I know that I can expect them soon.

    Quote:Put in the nest boxes, and put some kind of fake egg or even golf balls in the boxes, so they know what to do.

    Thank you. I waas just making sure, and I will also cut the light on in the coop at night tonight. Because I am excited to get an egg. I also have done the Two finger test on 2 of my hens, and they were right at it!
