    I have one mille fleur hen that I have had for a yr and a half now. When I got her last spring they said she was hatched in fall. She never laid many eggs, it was really rare that she would. I dont think we've even gotten 2 doz in a yr and a half. Since last saturday she has laid 5 eggs which is a big shock to us, lol. How often do your d'uccles lay?

    My porcelains lay almost every day in decent weather. They don't lay at all when it's super hot (mid 90's and up).
