In the Brooder
- Aug 21, 2014
OK as it says Already???? got some babies back in Late March and early April. Should have wrote down when we got them I can't remember if it was picked up or ordered at that time. Anyway wow today I go out and I found that the Amber Whites have started to lay eggs already. Looking at the Black Australorps bought at the same time don't have any yet.. The one on the top right was one that I seen first. because there was a hen laying a egg where another hen had layed on seeing after I collected the one and left the coop she got up to find 2 more. I will tomorrow start feeding them layers seeing I already fed them before I seen the eggs. Almost looks like the first one was clawed at to move it out of where the hens were laying them.The egg are very good with no cracks right now they are only getting Scratch, Grass and loads of tomato that I left on the plant to long. They love them.... So to me they look great.. My son thinks I should have left them to let the hens set and hatch them however I don't know they will and this time to many chickens in the coop to make me feel like leaving them. the other hen was alone with her own rooster. This one has 9 hens and 2 roosters. So wasn't sure it was a good idea..
