Ok I am very new to this chicken thing!!! We picked up 4 gals(we hope) that are between 4-9 months this weekend. All seem to be pretty friendly and came from a farm flock near by. Well we have 4 nest boxes in our coop itself. 2 girls were in the run and I looked in the coop and found that the other 2 birds were squeezed into the same 12 x 12 inch nestbox this evening. They did not seem agitated, just a little uncomfortable with the size. they were there for a while that I saw. My question is... one of the birds is our bird in question as to male or female. I believe it is a delaware mix. The other is a young (I am guessing 16-20 week black sex link)pullet. Would this be normal for 2 hens or one of each??? I will post pics of both birds so you can see the birds in question. The delware mix is a bigger bird. any thoughts. One hen did lay an egg today but totaly seperate nest box and I think it was one of the other gals.
