P1010004Last week we spent a couple of days building nesting boxes for the youngest chickens on the farm. There are 450 chickens which are now 4 1/2 months old and will start laying small pullet eggs any day now. Within a month they will be a t full production laying mostly large eggs. We provide a nesting box for every 5 to 8 birds although they will find boxes which they prefer and not lay a single egg in others.
