A se­cret nest

Your Chickens - - Contents -

I am still wait­ing for my Fay­oumi cross pul­lets to start lay­ing. One of them is lay­ing eggs in my neigh­bour’s gar­den un­der an ivy bush. Luck­ily, de­spite all the rain we have had, it is quite a dry spot; I have just found out who she is as she is very se­cre­tive but she seems to be the only pul­let who has started. The ad­van­tage with hens reach­ing point of lay, quite late, at around 28 weeks, is that eggs are larger from the start; cer­tainly they don’t look like the typ­i­cal pul­let eggs!
