We have a number of chickens we have obtained from various sources. A week and a half ago we had at least 5 hens laying including two leghorns we had just recently bought. All the chickens live together and free-range along with being given some cracked corn morning and night. The bulk of our flock are Ameraucana straight run pullets and cockerels we bought as chicks from Cackle Hatchery and they arrived in early-mid March. No eggs from them yet-- didn't expect them quite yet. We also have an older club-footed ameraucana / EE hen, the two leghorns, and two old white rocks, and another old hen of unknown breed who lays white eggs. We know we have gotten at least one egg from each of these in the last two weeks. We had at least two days with five eggs. About a week ago we started having a heat wave, and all production stopped. But for the last two or three days, the weather's been more normal. The chickens seem very happy, all flying about outside, scratching, eating, drinking, sparring, squabbling, and sitting in the shade in the heat of the day. I don't think we've lost any that I know of. But in six days we've had two eggs. Come on, chickens! You can do better than that. What's up?
