You are not going to believe this - i don't. i have six Red Star hens in an enclosed coop and pen. Also have one EE in there who is just finishing a molt and has not started laying again. i collect eggs every day - six big brown eggs every single day, rain or shine. i collected those six two days ago, i know i did. Then yesterday afternoon i go out and find TEN eggs. Well, i thought to myself, i must have missed some or forgotten them over the past few days. So i checked every nook and cranny in the six nest boxes and made sure those ten were it. Then today i just went out and found EIGHT big brown eggs laid in plain sight in two of the nest boxes(?!?!?!?). How on earth is that possible? i am not making this up. i knew those Red Stars were egg-laying machines, but this is beyond belief. Here is the booty from today (made a quiche from the ten i collected yesterday). Here are some of those rockin' Reds. i used to complain about how pushy they were, but not complaining now!
