    I'm not sure which hen laid it. I have 2 sweet banty hens and I found a cute little egg on the ground in thier coop. Neither was sitting on it and it was cold so I removed it. It's been about a week and no more eggs. Is this normal when they first start laying? They are both about 5 months (maybe a little older) I have a Roo in with them so they will most likely be laying fertile eggs but I have no intention of eating them. I'd love a few more banties. They are like potatoe chips....can't have just one, not sure when to stop!!
