You lucky thing ! What are you doing with your eggs ?I didn't expect eggs this year from my May Blue Swedish ducks, as everyone said they'd probably not lay until spring. But they started laying about a month ago. And then this week there were two shell-less eggs which indicated that two more were coming online. So I have eight hens (and two drakes--my most fortuitous straight run), and I've been getting between two and five eggs/day. Amazing!
I have 2 cochin bantams that have been giving me 1 egg a day each for a week. 1 more cochin bantam that has yet to start (I'm figuring any day now) My 2 oldest (2 weeks older than the bantys), a black sex link laid egg #1 on Monday, none yesterday And a lavender orpington who I thought would be first because she was doing the dance and was getting red in the waddle/comb a month ago has given me nothing. Not to mention her comb and waddle are now pale pink again. I don't expect anything from the youngest (about a month younger than the bantys) until Thanksgiving. (Can you tell I was playing chicken math a couple months ago )One today from one of my bufflings. There are 6 yet to start and the other 7 have no excuse apart from a couple of them are on the back end of the dreaded molt.
Girls need to pick up their game !
