I've been reading this forum for a few years and I'm learning a lot from all of you. I've had my 25 chickens almost 4 months. You all are so helpful people and being new I have questions I'll be posting. I guess I just want to thank you all ahead of time.
Anyway..question..When I was a young girl my grandparents had chickens. I can remember there were always golfballs in the nesting boxes. I'm wondering why. Is this a way of encouraging hens to lay?
