Hello my poultry friends! I have two questions and though I know I can research I have 19 month old twins and this is way faster. LOL So first, I have 5 hens who are laying every day, except for one (remember the except for one for the second question ), They all seem to lay at different times of the day so I am back and forth always checking. Question 1, how long can the eggs sit before collecting them? Now the second question, and this is weird, tonight after feeding my chickens I was walking back to the house and right there in the front yard was an egg, very soft shell and still a littel wet. I am wondering if this is the one hen who hasn't given me anything yet. But what does this mean and why would she just plop down in the front yard? Btw, we have free range ladies so they are all over the acreage. Thanks as usual!!!!
