Big Momma, my pekin who was born on April 2, 2010 suprised me Saturday morning! I went out around 6:30 to let them out of the night pen and clean it out. While I was spraying the concrete paver stones around the ramp to their pool, an egg rolled out!! It was cracked in several places so my guess is she must have been on the ramp when she layed it. Sunday morning, I went out and looked and there was #2, also cracked...so, I put hay down around that edge and corner where I had put a nest box for her - today I have #3 - it was on the hay but not in the nest box - no cracks!! I am so excited - I really didn't think we'd have eggs till next spring! I am going today to get some sort of rubber matting to put down in the pen since I found out (thanks to a BYC member) that the concrete is bad for their feet and now to help protect the eggs! Is there anyway to train her to lay in the nest box?
