    I was wondering why only 4-6 hens were laying...lol. The other ladies had a hidden nest they were laying in :eek:!!
    there are nearly 20ish there. I don't know how long they've been there but a Welly has her bushy butt planted on then. No fertile eggs. These probably aren't fit for the fam to eat, right? Rains and 90+°

    I wouldn't eat them unless I knew how long they had been there. The same thing happened to me this past two weeks and I threw them away because they were bad.
