Yes... eggS, plural While I have been haunting nesting boxes to see that treasured first egg, SOMEBODY (or multiple somebodies) has been laying behind a pile of cinder blocks in the corner of my privacy fence!!! I saw my Barred Rock Frick wander over there and disappear. She has been out of the run the last couple days when I get up in the morning, so I started to suspect some mischief (yes, I am kind of slow). Well... when she left her hidey hole and I checked, there were NINE eggs!!!! Now... questions(s). they are all small pullet sized eggs - how many small eggs do they lay? 3 are a little darker than the others, but not by much. Could they be from one hen and the others from someone else? Sneaky chickens.
