My two bantam Cochins were steadily giving me about two eggs each every week (sometimes more, sometimes less). I heard that that was kind of slow but that's how it's been for as long as I can remember. Well, for about three weeks they both stopped laying. I was hopping one or both would go broody soon but with no eggs, that wasn't going to happen. I checked the box on Friday and dicovered three eggs. They weren't there the day before and I went crazy!! Is it possible that one of them had two eggs on the same day? Very confusing. lol There was a fourth eggs in there this morning. Neither hen is sitting on them yet. If they're anything like their parents, they'll wait until there's about seven or eight eggs before they go broody. I really hope to have baby Cochins soon. Wish us luck. Do you think it makes a difference that their three year birthday is coming up in July?
