    I just went out to feed and check for eggs and low and behold a found in the coop on the floor a hidden nest with 3 eggs in it!!! [​IMG]
    I knew I would find 1 egg in the nesting box as I knew I had 1 laying, but I never expected a nest in the corner on the floor, these eggs show to be at least 2 different layers and 1 of the eggs is a blueish/green color, I suspected 1 of my sexlinks had to have some ee in her now I know! [​IMG] I am so happy & excited! [​IMG]

    Congratulations on your find!! Before I got all my hens caught and penned up I stumbled upon a nest with 6 eggs in it in my bushes! Rose bush with thorns. It was painful getting those eggs out and trying to catch her![​IMG]
