    My hen (Astralorp) started laying yesterday after 28 weeks (I was getting worried).

    Today, she laid an egg in the morning and then less than 8 hours later, she laid another egg. Is that normal for a new egg layer?

    Or did a new hen started laying? Only other brown egg layers are two 21 weeks NH Reds.

    The eggs look of the same size, coloration and texture so I assume it is from the same hen.

    i think its possible for the new hampshire reds to have laid it, a couple of my chickens laid eggs around that age

    I think it is possible for a young Black Aussie to do that. I have 6 of them and really like them. Sweet natured and shy but have learned to hop up on our laps in evening during our 'chicken TV ' time. [​IMG] All are laying at 7 mo age and no artificial light or special food either.
