Hello Everyone! I've gone to the Chickens to say the least - we had 5 Golden Comet chicks join us yesterday and they're all doing well We have a mature hen (blue Orphington I think) who I just recently let out in the yard to venture around and enjoy herself. She was a very reliable egg layer until I started letting her out - no eggs in the last 3 days (I looked all around the yard as well, just to be sure). Is she just too excited to be out and about? Should I keep her in her pen again for a few days and maybe try to figure out her usual egg-laying-routine? Will she (and others that will also be allowed to roam the yard during the day) find a "new" place to lay outside? I also had a little chick born about 4 weeks ago, it was the only 1 that hatched out of 5 eggs that were given to us. It is mostly dark grey on the top and wings and yellowish on the belly and chin. It has somewhat fluffly cheeks. Just curious to learn what kind of breed it is. Any ideas? We're new to Chickens of course, so any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance and Happy Chick keeping!
