My flock of various breeds just recently started laying. I think I have two pullets laying right now. I also have a silkie girl who is not yet laying. I have various boxes/crates in the coop at the moment as nesting boxes (an empty plastic storage container, a cat carrier and a covered litter box). Sometimes I'll find an egg in one of the nesting boxes, sometimes behind the box, and sometimes in a random spot...BUT no matter where the egg is, the silkie pullet is sitting on it! I guess that makes my egg hunt easier - find the silkie, pick her up, there's the egg (s). I bought her to be my incubator for this coming spring and something tells me she's going to do a good job.
