    It has been nearly exactly 5 months to the day, and I discovered a hidden nest!

    One of my buffs started laying 7 days ago. Do you think I have more than one hen laying due to the color variance?

    Looking at the color, size, and shape differences I would guess that you may have as many as 3 hens laying.

    This is so exciting, I suspected the same thing. I have a degree in life science.. can't take the scientist out of me!
