    I can't believe it! I have another hen laying eggs!I have a mixed flock of 6 hens and 1 roo that have a large run.My blue andalusian and 2 black australorps hve been laying strong since summer.3 of the others,my sumatra,my red sexlink and my blue's baby splash andalusian(not a baby anymore)have not layed an egg so far,until yesterday.I got a smaller than normal tinted egg.I got another today after the layers already layed their eggs.I think it is my splash because she has been going in and out of the nestbox alot,and she follows her mother when she goes in.She also sits in the hay and makes a nest and sits in it.Now I have four layers in my white leghorn roo's flock and one other in my RIR roo's flock that was broody [​IMG]

    Congratulations to you, can't wait for my 2008 babies to start laying. So far, three RIR and one Leghorn have started laying. Keep begging Ameraucana's to get with it. Come on green eggs. I was at three eggs, the othe day, I got 7. Leghorns are giving the most.
