Deb, I’d do it now! Once they have an egg is the nest they are committed to the nesting and are less apt to be frightened away. I wouldn’t add both at once – add the one you suspect you need the most first, and watch to be sure they’ve accepted it. You’ll be able to tell if there’s a 2nd egg tomorrow. Once they’ve accepted that, then introduce the other. Again, watch to be sure egg-laying continues.
