    They were all the same age and they all started laying early in September but one today and I heard they won't lay if they don't lay after October and now I have these weird colored eggs is it possible that she's laying early in the middle of the winter?

    G’Day from down under Karen [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    x2 on CTKen's comment, lol. The days are slowly getting longer and with more daylight, the chickens will start laying more.

    Enjoy your new eggs!
