There is no need to get her used to it. All you will end up with is her wasting her energy to lay eggs that are not fertile. She is too young still It is like asking a 12 year old girl to give birth- she may be biologically ready, but is at greater risk for complications! Your hen will be at greater risk for egg binding, egg eating, uterus prolapse and more.Thanks guys!!! Zeena, I had the nestbox attatched because I had the female alone and I wanted her to ge tused to it, and I got her for Christmas, so she is deffinatly atleast 10 months old, she has never moulted. I do not know the age of the male. Thanks Jennifer and Jess! Lucy, I decided to name him Julio. Julio & Bella, seems good! Lol
Both should be 12 months of age at leastAlright I will remove it! And how old should the female be??
