    Default Really Late Nesting

    Haven't had any luck yet.
    Was out again this morning, and saw a total of 9 hens feeding in soybean fields, so obviously they aren't nesting yet.
    this is really late for this area.
    anyone else finding the same?

    How long were they feeding? Hens still have to eat, even if they have a nest, they will get up and go eat then go back to the nest.

    Usually once hens start nesting they only leave the clutch when the ambient temperature warms somewhat.
    Mid to late morning and only for a couple hours.
