My 2 hens are both laying now! YAY! (One started a month ago, the other about a week ago.)Their cycle seems to be about a day-and-a-half. So they lay 1st day early morning, 2nd day late afternoon, 3rd day not at all, then repeat. I'm wondering if they'll eventually start laying every day, and at the same time every day? It doesn't matter now, but come spring, I'll want to put them in a lightweight, moveable pen in the lawn. If they're laying at a consistent time every day, I can be sure they're in the coop when they get "the urge". Otherwise, should I put a nest box in the pen? At this point they've only each used the nestbox once, but I'm hopeful they'll catch on soon. Usually, I find the eggs in the run or in the coop, sometimes dropped from the roost! Oops! Pre-scrambled eggs!
