Everyone Laid Today!!!! YAY!!!!.... wait... no?

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by chickensducks&agoose, Feb 15, 2009.

  1. I have 7 hens who should be laying (plus a mommy chicken, a chick and 2 roos), and I actually saw 7 eggs today (one was broken in the coop), which means that for the first time ever, they all laid!!!! I am SO, SO happy!!!! ... wait! .....actually, somehow someone must have laid 2, or the mommy chicken laid one... because I realize I only got one blue/green egg, and I have 2 EEs.... huh... the mommy chicken hatched her baby on christmas.. could she be laying yet??? now I'm confused... dang... Anyway... 6 eggs in the fridge.. YUM!

    i had a hen that hatched out some eggs and a month-or-so later she would lay an egg and go back and protect the babies! [​IMG]

    I'm not sure about this as I haven't experienced it yet, but I read that some folks get EE's that lay regular brown eggs (to their disappointment). Hope you will get two green/blue/pink eggs in one day in the future! Genie

    Before you get too upset or jump to conclusions, such as KFC, I will speak for your hens and say, "Yes, we all laid eggs. Each and every one of us." [​IMG]

    Don't stress, there's always tomorrow, or the next day, or the next day, or the next...... [​IMG]
