    So i went out to check on the coop today , take note of water'r and feeder status and was looking around and what do i find on the floor in the corner!

    but 2 brown eggs in a little nest! (i really didnt think they had watched the orientation video for the nice nest boxes i gave them)

    so i took one inside and set the other in a nest box.

    Will they take the hint?

    Congrats on your eggs! Don't you love how we spend all this time making nice things for them and then they just do what they want? [​IMG]
    Try putting some golf balls or fake eggs in the nests. It worked for my girls.
