Our first egg was laid last Thursday in the dirt near the water container.

Tonight I went to set out the evening feed, fresh water & toss around some fresh bedding in the coop. Went to move the bag of wood shavings & there proud as you please is egg #2 sitting on the floor in some wood shavings, 2 feet from the nesting box. So we are getting closer.

Sweet egg:weee Do you have golf balls or fake eggs in your nest boxes? They usually see the round thing and think that "someone layed an egg here so this must be a good place to lay". It usually takes a few times to get it in the box but the golf balls have worked like a charm for me. Congrats on getting eggs, the first ones are always the best.

I have hubby's old cleaned white golf balls in the nests. Put fresh wood chips in & every day I have to re-adjust the golf balls because they have been moved. Hope someone figures out, that is what the boxes are there for.
