    i AM like a little child in a toy store, My chcickens 9 month old rir, which I HAVE BEEN COMPLAINING ABOUT not laying. YesterdAY i found in the nesting box 2 eggs, little ones about the size of a small size eggs bought in store. And today nanother one. My question is how come I have 3 rir, which I think laiud them, and today just one. Does that mean that yesterday 2 od the rir laid eggs and today the other one did?> Or how does it work? They laiod in the same nesting boxes. Another is how come yesterdays eggs were 2 side by side. DOEWS IT MEAN THAT ONE RIR laid then left and another rir came and laid next to it. thanks for info

    Yes the first 2 were laid by 2 different RIRs. The one the next day could be any of them. RIRs usually lay 1 egg every 25 hours but with new layers and cold weather that can be thrown off. Once the weather warms up and they get a little older thay will lay on a regular schedule.
    CONGRATS on your first eggs! That's always so exciting!

    Quote:Yes. They like to lay where others have already laid because that makes it "safer".

    It's like when young girls start their cycles... you just never know when or where. They will mellow out in a while. [​IMG] In any case CONGRATS [​IMG]
