3 hens, 5 eggs?!*
« on: September 16, 2010, 23:06 »
Hi,
Have had my 3 girls (white sussex, speckledy,oxford blue) for 4 weeks and have had 3 eggs per day from the offset. They are now 23/24 weeks old.
Last week I had 3 normal eggs and 2 paper like eggs(with yolk) on one day, 3 eggs the next (one a double yolker), 3 eggs the next plus 2 paper like ones again then 3 eggs per day for next 4 days.
This week again a variety of double yolkers, paper like eggs but always 3 normal eggs a day.
The paper like ones are always laid in the early evening in the middle of the lawn and I witnessed one being laid tonight -poor girl looked a bit shellshocked and just stood there like she didn't know what had happened!
Do you think this will settle down or have I got super hens?

yeah, they'll settle down.

you get a lot of those soft shelled eggs at the beginning (and two in a day because of it)

it's a bit like the onset of puberty in humans - it's all a bit odd-timing until their bodies sort it out!
 :lol:
