Hi all! I have an assortment of chickens and would like to know from personal experience about when your chickens of the same breeds started laying. (I've had mixed info so I'm just curious when I need to start searching) Also- any tips on how to get them to use the nest boxes you intend them to use? Does putting a golf ball in there actually help? I'll attach a pic of the coop inside. Breeds are: 1 Red star 2 Black star 1 Buff orpington 1 Delaware 1 Barred Plymouth Rock Thanks in advance! There are three nesting boxes (on the left side) about 13.5 in square.
