Haha!! This is a joke, mostly. I've seen numerous times when someone starts thread wondering, "why oh why haven't my chickens laid an egg yet?!?!?!?!"... .... lo and behold, within a few days their birds start to lay. So thought I'd give it a shot. Put the portable nest in the coop today, and slapped together another one. A few of the pullets are looking close to laying, reddening up and Woody has mounted them, and just the 4 main nests for now 23 potential layers could cause a traffic jam. Time will tell if this is enough...and whether anyone will use the hack and slash open bin nest. There's another hoop coop planned soon, this time with nests, for that overflow/transition time between when new pullets are in full lay and older birds are culled before winter.
