Hi all - here's the short version of a long story A couple years ago I started my "flock" by getting a couple of chickens from someone who was moving and needed to get rid of theirs. I am now the proud owner of 2 beautiful Barred Rocks. Last Fall we were getting an egg a day and then this past winter we were getting about 2-3 eggs a week. I assumed one of our little ladies had stopped laying as the eggs we were getting all looked the same. There are only 2 of us so I was OK with only have 1 producing hen. I knew when Spring rolled around I would start getting an egg a day. Even though we eat a lot of eggs but I'd live with 1 a day until we got a couple more girls. Back around the end of March early April, no more eggs However - I did notice lots of feathers an a bit of a naked neck on one of my girls so I figured "Oh, you must be the one who is still laying" April - No eggs, May - No eggs, June, No eggs. Well, we started with someone else's birds and we had no idea how old they were so I figured they both were "done". SO after we came back from our summer vacation (July 13 - Still no eggs) so we ordered a couple of new hens. Today is August 1. As of today we have gotten 5 fresh, brand spanking newly laid eggs!!!!! NO we have not gotten our new little hens - SOMEONE has started laying again. Has anyone heard of that? After 4 months of not laying??? Just curious…….
