    After waiting for so long, my silkie mix hen (which was an adult when I purchased her) finally laid her first egg. She was making odd loud noises and going in and out of the nest boxes all week so we were assuming she was going to lay an egg all week.
    How about any of you? Have your ladies their first egg or recently started laying again after winter?

    Here are some pictures:



    And here is the proud hen!

    Wow! She looks like a pure Silkie. My hens have started back laying despite our 20 degree nighttime temps.
