We are wrapping up this summers projects around the farm, one of which is the chicken coop. My husband finished up the electrical, we have lights and power to the outlets for spring heat lamps! My dad made the laying boxes and installed them. We now have some very happy hens. I put an egg in one of the boxes to give the girls a hint- New laying boxes means it’s time to start laying eggs! (So far no luck. But they are old enough that it should be any day now.)
Wilma’s milk crate is still by the waterer because that’s where she tended to spend most of her time. Good news though, I can now remove it. She has been on the top of the roost the last couple days. I’m sure once she picks the box she want’s she will be there more often then not.
