    I added my nest boxes to the coops when our flock turned right around 17 and a half weeks old. Hope this helps.

    You are so Welcome!

    Whe I first got our chicks, back in May, I swear I double and triple checked many things, over and over again.

    Our flock will be 27 weeks old on Monday and all is well. So what do I do? Decide to get into...INCUBATING!!! It never ends.[​IMG]
