I only have 2 hens, a Buff Orpington and a Light Brahma. My BO has been laying eggs for about 3 weeks now but my Brahman has not been, or so I thought. Found an egg this morning under the wheelbarrow behind a pile of stuff. I know she has been hanging out in that area for the past week (I coop them at night and let them free range during the day - live in the city with a large backyard). Not sure when it was laid. My BO always goes back into the coop and into a next box to lay her eggs. Can I teach my Brahma to do the same thing? If I keep them cooped all day for a few days (hate to do that really) would that encourage her to start going to the box to lay like the BO does? Or will she always find creative spots to leave her eggs each day? Also, do some Brahmas have speckled eggs or is this just an oddity?
