I have 14 hens and 1 rooster. So far, only 2 hens are laying, and they're ones we inherited. The layers are a BR and a white legghorn. THe white's a great layer. Every day during the week and she usually takes a break over the weekend. Well the BR is every other day, and she misses some days. Well this morning I got out to the coop and there in the middle of the floor is a brown egg... I looked suspiciously at my other hens, and I don't think they're quite laying yet. But how could the veteran layer BR have missed the boxes like that?
