So - Over the years I have heard the old yarn that hens who are laying have bright red combs and wattles... while those who are not laying have greyish or not-so-vibrant combs and wattles. It always made me smile and sort of shake my head, but for several weeks, I have had around 3 eggs per day from my 7 hens (who, when out of molt and all is well generally do average 1 egg a day per hen - more accurately will lay 5-6 per week)... and - yep - three hens have bright red wattles and combs... four have wattles that look like they need a bit of oil or moisturizer... sporting a bit of a silver color. Does anyone have this experience? Am I dreaming? Am I going nuts? Am I a genius?
