Hi All My girls just hit the 12 week old mark. I believe I'm about 6 weeks away from egg laying, but I like to be prepared so wanted to ask a few questions I've been thinking on. When should I open the nest boxes? When should I place fake eggs in the boxes? When can I start layer feed (I have a about two weeks of chick feed left - can I transition now or is it too soon)? When do I start the calcium supplement? Is it enough to give them dried eggshells or is a supplement a must? What have I not even thought about that I should be asking? Thanks in advance. This community has made the experience of getting chickens so much less stressful and more rewarding than it would have been otherwise.
