    Thanks! Do you think she an EE - We currently get one brown egg and one greenish egg - all my girls look kinda alike. One does have more copper coloring. (She lays the greenish eggs.) Just love having these girls. Can't wait until spring to get more.

    Nope, she's a black sex-link. She'll lay light brown eggs.

    Your green egg layer will have a different type of comb - it will be small and lumpy looking.

    Black sex-link hen and she sure looks like she is laying. Anywhere that she could be hiding her eggs?

    She doesn't use the nest box or the corner of the coop. Would she burry the eggs in the pine shavings/straw - in another part of the coop?

    From your last pic it looks like there is some crawl space behind her...chickens are inventive and will get into a tight spot to lay for the privacy. I would look over any area that she has access to because I agree that she looks like she should be laying by now...
