    I have two females one is 5 months old and the other is 4 months old.Should I be lookin around the backyard for nests?They haven't been laying any in their pen/house.I had a duck once that had two nests she would lay in one she let us know about and the other was a secret that we found when we cleared out some brush.

    My first hens started at 4mths and still are despite the below freezing temps. My new hens are not but there still pretty frightened.. so don't know whether they will calm down enough to make it for this year.
