    First eggs - there are four?

    Hey all! I have four ducks - two Pekins (one drake) and two Golden 300 Hybrids. It’s been nasty rainy here in the PNW for two days, so I stupidly let myself be lazy and not clean the run for two days. OF COURSE, I come out this afternoon to clean, and find FOUR eggs in a little nest. My these...

    The Freeloader Chicken Finally Laid at 8 1/2 Months!

    My super sweet and quiet Buff Brahma Flossie Nugget finally laid her first egg yesterday! I can tell she is going to be laying big ones, as her first pullet egg was the size of a regular egg. It felt like forever, but I knew last week when she squatted that the time was finally near. Hopefully...

    What the heck is this? Weird egg.

    I found this in the coop this morning, on top of the nesting boxes. Current situation: of my 6 hens, 4 are laying. Two EE's are freeloading, but they have both squatted, although not regularly. One squats more/longer than the other. All 4 hens laid eggs yesterday, so I have no reason to believe...
  9. Finally the first egg!!!

    Finally the first egg!!!

    After being very impatient about the first egg our chickens will lay! And after researching that it was normal for them to be a little late, one of our chickens finally lay one egg just on time for my birthday!!!

    First egg!!!!!!!!

    Finally! This was my first time raising day old chicks and I’m so glad we did it- our 7 ladies are sweet as can be and that just makes caring for them so easy. The chicks arrived May 28, all “Sapphire Splash” from Hoover’s via TSC. Rickets laid it near the nest box, so I guess she gets points...

    Egg bound?

    Hi. My Barred Rock is trying to lay her first egg. She’s been constantly digging in the nesting box and has been panting with her beak open for 2days now. I’ve been with her all afternoon. Is this normal behavior for the first egg to be laid? I’ve given her oatmeal with some calcium and she ate...

    Started laying, now NO EGGS!

    Two of our chickens began to lay eggs for the first time this spring. They were free ranging and laying consistently. Over the last few days 0 eggs! Today we kept them in their coop all day, still no eggs!! Is this normal to go three to four days without eggs?

    Cream legbar, our first egg!

    I was observing the squatting behavior for a few days and then yesterday noticed Lucy's vent looked a little different... Fast forward to today. She kept going back in the coop alone and putting nest straw around a favorite place even occasionally settling in for several minutes in the indent...

    How close do you think she is?

    My buff Orpington is 23 weeks and started squatting almost two weeks ago. Her sister laid a week after starting squatting. What's your guess on when she will lay? so excited! 😊

    Please, tell me they get quieter after they have laid their first half dozen eggs? I have nine hens 21.5 weeks old. White Leghorns. The first egg came with a lot of noise about two weeks ago. The daily quantity slowly increased with the noise. Yesterday I had seven eggs. And the racket has...

    One of the girls FINALLY did it!!

    She laid her first egg! I've hatched birds before but it's always SO EXCITING when you get your first egg. I honestly thought she was a rooster for a while due to her colors, and I thought another one of my hatched birds would be the first to lay. My rooster was breeding this one this morning...

    So Egg-citing!

    Long story short, came home to my first egg today!! So exciting! Due to the wildfires here in Oregon, the air quality has been abysmal and we brought the girls into the laundry room in a make shift container on Tuesday. Yesterday one of my girls was acting super weird and she just looked...
