They finally got old enough and then the days were too short. Put in a light on a timer and ggradually adjusted to 5 am giving them 14 hrs of daylight. That was 2 days ago! Wasn't expecting anything and pulled the nest box out to clean the coop and there it was! The most perfect light brown egg! I am SO proud of my girls!
