Some of our pullets started laying a couple of weeks ago -- a few more seem to join them each week. Currently we have 23 pullets & 11 hens (last year's pullets). I'm thinking perhaps some of the older girls are going through a molt or are just off because of the weather as some of you also mentioned. About 3 weeks ago we were averaging 4 eggs a day. This past week we started getting 11 eggs every day, then 13, then 15. The grand total so far today....19! And some of them tend to wait until evening to lay. We had friends here for the weekend & decided to make eggs over the campfire for breakfast. Chloe donated the eggs from her birds -- she cracked up & scrambled 8 dozen quail eggs for the 9 of us. Boy were they yummy!
