Hi, new to this but earlier looked up to see when a hen will start laying eggs again if still with her chicks. Most answers were not at all. I have a bantam, don't know if it is a particular breed, but she has 2 spangle chicks which are only 3 1/2 weeks old and she has just laid an egg. Just wondering if anybody else has also experienced this. Also I have been given a mixture of 5 week old chicks along with their Mum. How can I tell their sex please. Looking forward to some answers please. Thanks, Wendy.
