I was roused out of bed today by "the skinny brown chicken is gone and I can't find her". She was with the other 3 earlier, and I was told that there was a BIG commotion during a conference call and when it was over she had vanished. My thoughts were between: she probably laid an egg and got confused, or a hawk. Now about 1.5 weeks ago, one of my four 21 week old pullets laid a shell-less egg which broke. It was my first chicken egg and it made me kind of sad. I had no idea who laid it. Well, we found Hawking, the Welsummer, where we keep the rubbish bins and old terrariums. She was sitting down in some lead litter, and when she moved, I saw multiple eggs!!! She got off the makeshift nest on her own, and I collected three small, white pullet eggs!! I was over the moon! I hadn't heard that they will lay multiple eggs, with the average being every 25 hours for one... And I don't think any are from a different day, as I'm sure the rats, possums, and coons would have eaten them??? Is this okay? They're also not the terracotta color of the Welsummer, and I thought I had read that they develop more slowly than my other chickens (two Easter eggers and a BO). I read that lack of egg color means a poorer quality bird? I'm super excited!
