    Two of our four hens are EEs, one of which hasn't layed for months, the other for a few weeks. I just figured their laying days were over. Or so I thought. As my DH was clearing out the old garden, he found this stash of eggs under a piece of plywood that was laying against one of the old garden boxes. They are from my brown EE who is clearly on the bottom of the pecking order. Looks like she found a nice place that the other girls wouldn't bully her out of. We found a total of 16 eggs. Now I guess it is time to do the egg float test!

    pretty eggs! Maybe you should build her a little outdoor nest box to lay in away from the other girls. Glad you found her stash!

    Quote:After finding the stash, we decided to leave the plywood against the house so she can have her own little place to lay. [​IMG]
