Have any of your hens started laying yet or is it ioo early.
Yes, my pied peahen has been laying for at least a month. I have one black Silkie hen setting on 2 of her eggs and 1 white Silkie hen setting on another 2 of her eggs. She still has 5 eggs in the nest and she has not decided she is ready to set for herself yet, still laying eggs! Last year she ended up having about 8 or so eggs in her nest before she decided that it was time for her to set! I just let some of my Silkie hens help us out so that we can end up with more baby peachicks!

My cousin has 42 peahens & most have been laying for over a month. He had his first incubator hatch about 10 or 11 days ago.
