last sunday I got a hen from a friend of mine, when I get the chance I'll get one or two more. in four days I got 3 eggs. not that odd, but she layed the first day, but not the next. then she layed on in the night. today about miday. I'm not really botherd just wondering if it sounds more like stress or just a hen that does her oun thing. there are 9 chicks in a small pen in her coop so she is not alone. but we did have to use a fish net to get her out of a tree after dark. I don't know what breed she is. she if full size, brown/tan with tuffs around her face. and what is the age that hens start to lay?
