So one thing is (and I have read astralophs can take longer) I read some where that there can be a huge personality change for some pullets one they start laying. And I've seen this worth most of them. They go from hiding at the sight of me to suddenly I can almost walk up to each one before they skitter off. Except black betty who up until 2 days ago strictly stayed hiding in the background under the bamboo and away from most of the other girls. She wouldn't even come out of the run if someone was by the gate. So 2 days ago suddenly she is constantly walking the run, running up to the gate when we visit the girls and even letting me walk with in a few feet of her before wandering away. Thing is I have a egg I'm not sure belongs to any of my others and I'm thinking it might be black betty's.
I'm hoping I'll get confirmation today with 3 extra large eggs (I have 2 that lay large/extra large and 3 lay small/medium right now)
But is additude (personality) a good predictor of a possible or close to laying hen?
