So my Black sex link hen has been laying FAITHFULLY since July 4!
An egg a day from her, she has tried a couple times, to lay her eggs in my flower box. But I’ve gotten her to go in the nesting box.
I need her to teach the other ladies good habits once they start laying! Which should be any day now. Seeing as how they are all almost 22 weeks old.
I’m pretty sure that the happier/healthier the hen, the more eggs they’ll give you! …I’m sure there is more science-y stuff behind it. Ha!
One of the ladies favorite things to eat is dried mealworms. Gross. But, hey, they are happy.
The ladies usually will keep their distance, until they hear that bag shake. It’s so funny to watch them all (including the two ducks) run across the yard. My son is hand feeding my littles!
