Hey everyone...I have to admit I'm blown away by how much this forum has helped me. After more than 6 months of using BYC as my go to source for chicken info I felt the right thing to do is finally intro myself and share my experiences... and of course...ask a ton more questions. I got my day old chicks on Valentines Day of this year. I split an order with a friend of mine at work. My order was supposed to be the following: 1 Black Jersey Giant Rooster and the rest of these hens... 3 Black Austrolorops 3 Black Stars 3 Rhode Island Reds 2 Rose Comb Brown 1 Exotic Well I ended up with 2 roosters, had a Rose Comb Casualty, and still somehow have 14 chickens total *shrug* I truly went all out on these things. I'm a bit of a health nut and decided to raise my chickens organically. Here we are a little more than 6 months later and I've had 3 eggs and can't get them to use their nesting boxes. I've tried the golf balls, real eggs, different bedding and I'm running out of ideas. They just make a nest in the bedding and lay on the ground. I'm looking for some ideas and am ready to answer any and all questions. This is more about my intro but thought I'd throw my current problem in with it. Thanks all!!
