My Chicks are about 16/17 weeks old,they've been doing the deed for a couple weeks now(which by the way,my son does NOT like how it's being done...he tries to get them to stop,and I keep telling him it's natures way...he says,well,are you telling me it's natures way for that big ole rooster to grab the girl by her neck,throw her down,then rape her?? LOL)anyhow,my girls combs and wattles have gotten pretty big and nice and red. Just wondering since they are mating now,should I start looking for eggs? They have free range,with woods and such on the outer edges of my yard...I have nest boxes in their coup,but they never go in there till it's time for bed. So I'm thinking they aren't going to be laying in there. What are your thoughts??
