I did have some losses from this batch. I lost several of them when the door came open one night and something killed 4 of them. Right now there are 7 hens and 5 roosters (yes, some of those roosters will have to go). I have been waiting to see eggs because my sister-in-laws "chicks" that she also got from Tractor Supply at the same time I did, have been laying for about a week now.
This morning when I went out to feed the chickens I saw this.
No, not the stupid rooster who thinks he's a hen but the only leghorn hen I had left was in the nest box. She is a very small hen and I didn't expect her to be the first one to lay but she was in there and definitely nesting.
So I waited...and waited...you know when you are waiting on them, they take a lot longer.
I can't wait until those Barred Rock hens get laying too. They were very interested in what the little white hen was doing in the nest.
