Do the eggs all look the same?

They usually pick a favorite nest, but if they are just starting to lay, have had a disruption in picking a nest, or the nests are new, they may skip around a bit. Or she is messing with you, trying to keep you from stealing her eggs...

No mystery, they don't always lay in the same nest - especially at first.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

If there are two different colored eggs, there is likely two hens laying.
