My husband and I got some golden comets that were about a week old at the end of March. It is now October and I haven't gotten a single egg. They seem to not care at all about the nest boxes. All they do is eat and eat and eat. I am feeding them a good quality laying pellets that I get from Tractor Supply. They have fresh water and plenty of nesting boxes. The only thing I have not done is put the nesting boxes on a shelf in the coop as my husband hasn't put the shelf up, so I just have them setting on the floor by the perches. There is no evidence that they have even attempted to sit in the nesting boxes as the straw is still fluffy in each of them. Am I using the wrong materal for the boxes? What do you recommend putting in the boxes? My husband says that he doesn't want to keep spending money on feed for them if they aren't going to produce eggs and that he would rather have them in the freezer so that we can at least get some nourishment, but I know he is all talk cause he likes them as much as I do, but I need them to lay eggs!!
