We have 8 hens (2 Americanas, 2 White Rock, 2 Black Star and 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes). They hatched May 30, so they are only about 18 weeks old. We are in WI and the days are really starting to get shorter. Will they probably still lay this fall/winter? Put 2 ceramic eggs in the nesting boxes to get them used to the idea...and I find one gets kicked out of the box. Hoping they don't do that with the real eggs! Here are 2 checking out the nesting boxes.
