Thread Starter 

My girls are squatting for me again (well, all but one of the 4 hens) and I got two eggs this weekend, first eggs the girls have produced in weeks!!!  Yippee!!!!   

Got my first chicks in March, 2011; 4 easter eggers hens (Morticia, Natasha, Samantha & Lily);  We also have a boxer mix rescue dog (Bruno), two cats (Betty Lou & Fred) and quite a few fish (commonly referred to as 'the fish sticks').

Congrats!

How old are your hens? My two year old hen has been laying since Mid-January. Not sure why. She stopped laying from Oct - Jan.

I can't wait for spring! love.gif

Thanks!  The girls were born 3/23/11 so they are just over 10 months old.   I only have 4 hens and was getting 2-3 eggs a day before November, then dropped to 2 a week but when the snow fell it dropped to zero and we had a couple really cold weeks where the girls pretty much stayed in their coop (still no eggs).  Then it warmed up!   My ladies have been roaming the yard again and I was actually fearing that they'd found some new spot to lay...but found two eggs in the coop this weekend ...they are such good girls! 

 

This has been a very mild winter for Wisconsin and the snow is all gone now, days are getting longer and I'm hoping it stays that way!
