OK. Artemis, my lovely little BR laid her first egg on 8/17 neatly in the nest box, and laid daily except one day until 8/31. On 8/31, I got one in the nest box from Demeter, the BO (judging from egg song and behavior). No eggs since 8/31, and here it is 9/6. Been taking them their treats, and checking the nest box, where all eggs had been laid. Been talking to them about slacking. Benn reading online and reassuring myself that they were just young pullets (DOB for all 3 is 3/31) working things out. Been checking Artemis especially for signs and symptoms of internal laying. Been searching their pen and coop for eggs daily. Been scrutinizing poop. Everyone's happy and healthy. Today, I moved the poop board for it's weekly cleaning. And what to my wondering eyes should appear...but a clutch of 12!?! eggs. They're apparently all laying now, as there are 3 distinct shades of brown and sizes (and one bullet-shaped one that's gotta be a double yolker.) No one's broody, but they've decided that corner is better. Lesson learned. Sorry ladies for the "slacker" comments. Guess I gotta make the nest box more attractive again.
