We've been giving our red star chicken all the credit for laying eggs that are about 60 grams and brown, but now I'm wondering if she and the speckled sussex are taking turns laying what looks like the same sort of egg. We've gotten an egg a day for several months and I can't believe the one girl is doing ALL that work and the other one is a lazy lay-about. The third hen is a salmon faverolle and with her lighter brown eggs, it's easy to see what she's been up to laying-wise. (answer: not much) Can one chicken really be that productive? I think we've missed only three days since August.
