    My brown layer finally started laying yesterday in the middle of a winter storm! And she's laid 2 eggs in a row! Very excited bc she was an every other day layer and hadn't laid since thanksgiving! Both eggs went into the incubator with my duck eggs! :wee
    I may need to sign up for incubators anonymous :lau

    I've only got 2 hens and both stopped before thanksgiving. I'm trying to build my flock but incubating hasn't went to well but I'm hopeful. I was quite surprised. The week I stop checking I happen to notice it by chance. Hopefully she continues. I haven't given them any extra light but have thought about it. I do have to laugh that she would do this when we have ice and snow everywhere.
