In February I bought four Golden Comets....well, they started laying eggs just like they were supposed to. Though I have only been getting three a day. That wasn't to much of a big deal. Until I started free ranging them, at first they went back into the coop to lay, but then suddenly it all just stopped. My first thought was it was to hot, but then my dad found where one of them was laing and there was about six eggs. Today he found a second one, or maybe where they all have been laying. I don't have a total count, as there was a hen on the "nest" but there are so many eggs that they are overfollowing...
She was taking care of these eggs as if they were to hatch... It is so weird. When they first started laying, that is all they did, laid and went out to play.
I'm waiting an hour or so to go back out and see if see if she is off them to see exactly how many there are. Can't help but wonder if I some how got a rooster, which would be weird since golden comets are sex linked. O.o
