I forgot to mention this last week - too much going on. One of my Wyandotte hens, probably the oldest one - she's a month older than the others - has started laying eggs! I found the first one a day or so after Christmas, and she's been about 90% reliable since then. I guess you know the days are getting noticeably longer when the chickens start laying. Wyandottes are supposed to be very hardy and lay nearly all year long. Nice to see at least one of them is living up to expectations! Once we have all six of them laying regularly we'll get four to six eggs a day, and be able to stop buying eggs.
