A secret nest
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!
