It was the Australorp hen! I had checked often yesterday, no eggs, no one on nest. This morning, I went to let them out and there was the Australorp, Sheila, sitting on that nest! I went out later with warm oatmeal, as it's 8º here this morning and I heard Sheila hop down from the nest. I opened the door to find there was a warm, still wet egg. I'm so pleased with my little Sheila for resuming laying in winter. I'll keep checking to see if/when we might have more than one laying.
Who will lay first? Hens coming out of molt or pullets at point of lay? - Page 2
