Got Eggs?

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by Rooster Rules, Dec 21, 2012.

  1. Bantam hens started to lay just over a week ago, 1st egg. then 4 day wait 2nd egg,then 2 day wait for 3rd egg, now every day last 4 days.
    These are young spring hens, no extra light, 8 hours of daylight today.
    1 hen is a pure Black Rosecomb, other 2 F1 X, cochin,seabright and cochin/rosecomb.
    I think the eggs are from 1 bird, as it was bloody, all else super clean, same size basically and color, light brown.
    Sound normal???

    Sounds normal. It can take a while for them to find their speed.
     
  3. Thanx Den, should get better with the Mutts, have read that Black Rosecombs aren't great eggers...

    Today 3 young pullet/hens, 3 eggs all same color, all same size. That is a 1st, 1 egg in morning 2 in afternoon.
    This is in winter, no added light, probably cuz there pullets.
    I wonder if egg size will get bigger, maybe next winter they will take a break...
