It could be environmental, nutritional, seasonal, or just a particular breed of bird.
Sometimes you aren’t even sure which hens are laying – or not.
Today we are going to look at how you can check to see which of your hens are laying and not laying eggs.
Mine are easy - I've seen them laying before so I know which hen laid which egg.
Jane, the black naked neck, lays a creamy colored, almost white egg, Ann, the brown naked neck, lays a brown egg, and The Brown Bitch, the brown leghorn, lays a white egg.
They all run back to their nesting boxes to lay, no matter how far away from it they are.
None of my 5 Daisy's are laying yet and to be honest, when they do start, I could give a shit less as to which hen laid which egg as long as they keep me supplied.
