I have a 5 month old Cream Legbar pullet who I have heard sing the egg song in the past few weeks but have never seen an egg from her. This morning, for the first time I saw the Legbar Rooster breed with her. Do they usually start laying eggs before a rooster starts breeding them or after the rooster starts breeding them? My chickens have a fenced in 2 acre range, so if she is laying, I need to go on a serious Easter egg hunt, because all the usual places I find eggs are eggs from my known layers. One lays in a shed, one goes inside another coop I have and lays her egg, the ducks lay eggs behind the rabbit cages, and the rest go in the hen house and use the nesting boxes.
