One of my hens is older (more than 3 but could be as old as 5) and she has lived with me for about 6-7 weeks now. I got her because she was supposedly not laying anymore. That was the case for most of the time I have had her. Just today I found a pile of eggs in what I assume is her adopted nest box. There are seven whole one and 2 or 3 broken ones. Is it possible that she just started laying again? Has anyone else seen this? I am 90% positive they are hers. She is the only one that travels that far from the coop and my other two, which are white rocks, are only 14 weeks old. She free ranges during the day and some days I don't let them out of the coop and there has never been an egg in the coop. I am new to chickens, so this is a big mystery to me! p.s. Can I eat them if I just found them today? It has been up into the low 80's here during the day and I have no idea how long they have been there...Maybe I'll just hard boil them and feed them to the dogs. I'd hate to waste them, she worked so hard making those eggs!
