What in the world?! I was cleaning out my chicken coop just now and found an egg! Saffrenee, my half White Leghorn, had laid it. Why would a hen lay an egg on the coldest day of the year? My Bantie stops laying the 1st day of summer every year and starts up again in February. My two other girls stop laying around the 1st day of Fall. Saffrenee turned 2 at the end of September. Should I be concerned about her laying an egg in this cold weather? It was only 14 F when I got up this morning and tonight is to get down to 2 F. The chickens have no supplemental heat nor light in their coop. Why do you think she popped out an egg? Bizarre! Do I need to worry about her becoming eggbound in the cold weather ahead? Could she have laid an egg today because day before yesterday it was nearly 60 F here and sunny? Maybe making her think Spring had Sprung? The average temp this time of year is generally around 40 F, not 60 F. Could the super cold weather all of a sudden 'shocked' her into laying an egg?
