    This morning my four SS pullets are all making nesting noises and are very "busy" in two adjoining nest boxes. I doubt anyone is close to pumping out an egg as all four still have pale combs. But it sure is cute. Kind of like playing "house". There's a wooden egg in one of the boxes so they know what they're for.

    Good! Sounds like they will be ready when the time comes.
