    I have 5 young girls. The two oldest ones have a hatch date of 11 July. One is an Easter Egger and the other is a Dominique. As as newbie I don't know when to put the nesting boxes in their coop. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you:frow

    December 11 they will be 20 weeks. 20 to 24 weeks is the special # you are looking for. Nothing wrong with getting ready. How red are their faces? How red is the combs and wattles? They are squatting? Are they nesting longer? What are they mumbling and telling you? So what did they say whats the gossip? Who are they saying is going to be the first egg? [​IMG]
