Newbie here. My two hens are almost exactly 5 months old. As far as I know they have reached the age to start laying. They've been good about almost never going into the nesting boxes up to this point, which I've heard is good thing until they're ready to lay. Yesterday I noticed that perfect little nests had been formed in the straw inside of the nesting boxes (see attached photo). No eggs, but I assume this behavior means that they will lay any day now? Anyone have a good guess or experience with this? I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of an egg! Mostly because my wife enjoys watching me fail at my hobby and keeps telling me they are never going to lay. LOL!!!
