    So I went out this mornignt o collect yesterdays and todays eggs - and found EIGHT!

    My girls had two nests that they were hiding - both held two large white eggs - had to move them to nests inside the pen though as I dont let mine free range 24/7.

    I also found 2 little green eggs!!!!!! So Im NOT crazy , One of my buff crosses IS laying this time!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]


    then I had my two regular cayuga eggs ( i think )


    But stilll!!! I mean I found four new nests and eight eggs!!!!!!!!!


    Now I just have to figure out which buff cross is laying.

    I love finding duck eggs. One of my ducks just started laying again after they all quit for the molt. I was so excited to find that egg yesterday! [​IMG]
     
  3. I'm still waiting for my three year-old hens to start laying after their molt! [​IMG]
    And I have one Welsh Harlequin due to start her first season in mid October and another young Khaki Campbell will hopefully start early November.
    Every day I try not to get my hopes up too much. It's frustrating right now!
    But hearing about all your hens starting is giving me hope!! [​IMG]

    Ill keep my figers crossed for yall!


    Well Its just so awesome since ive only been getting an egg or two a day since august, and now all of a sudden im getting three or four a day!

    I want to leave them in thenest because they are way better brooders than me but it is so hard not to pick them up and put them in the bator [​IMG]

    My three Khaki Campbell hens started laying a few weeks ago. 2 eggs the first day and then 0,1, or 2 there after. Today, was the first time we got 3 eggs. Woohoo! All three have started to lay.
