My girls have been laying for about a week, week and a half or so now. I went into the coop this morning to find one of my Black Jersey Giants laying. Came back in after a while and Brown Chick one of my Easter Eggers was sitting on the freshly laid Jersey egg, while I was in the coop she laid a beautiful mint green egg of her own. This was the first time I actually got to see one of my girls lay. So I gave her an egg that one of my Rocks had laid that morning, she took it. She rearranged the eggs and sat back down on them. I just went in to change out the water in the coop and she is still sitting on them. I put a small container with food and small container with water close to her. I am going to be keeping an eye on her but could she be broody at 5.5 months? If so this is really exciting for me. My Barred Rock rooster has been mating the girls for weeks now. Any suggestions or tips when dealing with a broody girl would be wonderful!
