i have just got one bluebell hen and was wondering if anyone knows what coloured egg they lay ??
They lay brown eggs, depending on the strain anything from a pinkish light brown to mid-brown.
I've just had a bluebell and was wondering if there are any signs as to when she might start laying? She's about 19wks old thanks x
Usually a good sign that hen is approaching lay is their combs and wattles, which will turn a nice bright red, but Bluebells' combs and wattles often do not turn very red, so other signs you can look for is a sudden interest in the nest boxes, singing the "egg song" and (if she'll let you) you can check for widening of her pelvic bones. There's more on how and what to feel for here (scroll to the bottom):
