One of my chickens (a White Rock) just started laying eggs this week. I've had her since August and I was beginning to think she was never going to lay an egg. She has always been very stand-offish and stays separate from the the other two Delawares I have who are ALWAYS together. She always stays out of reach when I go near. Since she started laying she's been a whole new chicken. She's friendly and she will even take something from my hand now. She's getting along with the other two girls as well. Wow! I can't believe the change is her. I guess she feels like one of the girls now.
