I have 3 older hens and 2 younger hens. The 3 older lay eggs. I was getting 1 egg a day then the next day 2 eggs and so on every other day 1 egg and every other day 2 eggs. I knew who was laying what... but for the last 4 days I have been getting 2 eggs EVERY day... and well that would mean one of the 3 girls is laying more frequent then she should be OR 1 of the younger hens has started laying eggs... I did a butt check... LOL I looked at the 2 younger hens vent to see if it looked larger because I know once they have started laying eggs their vent gets a bit bigger... well the larger of the 2 younger's looked a bit larger than the smaller of the 2 younger's but then again it could just be because she is a larger hen... IDK is there any for sure way to know other that seeing the egg come out... The one I think it might be is almost 4 months old... so I don't even think she is old enough yet..
