It’s been 14 days since our first egg and in that short time the four oldest hens are now all laying. They are getting the hang of laying in the nesting boxes.
|In the Nesting Boxes|
The 4 older hens are now 23 weeks and the 2 younger hens are at 19 weeks. We only have 2 more hens to go before they are all laying and they are getting close. Yesterday, we had 3 eggs earlier in the day. When our son was gathering the 3 eggs of the day he also found this.
|No Shell Egg|
Based on our latest find we are pretty darn sure that we have a 5th gal starting to lay. Woo hoo! It is quite common for early layers to lay no shell and soft shell eggs when they start laying. So we may have a few soft shell eggs, but they should start to normalize soon.
Every day is a new discovery!
