My hens have started laying properly now (mostly) even though it is still frosty in the mornings. It's the number of daylight hours that counts rather than temperature - I think! How cold is cold where you are?

Welcome to this forum btw! It has been -2 here, though no colder recently. Someone else here may comment on the temperature/daylight hours issue....

Thanks I had then as a kid and don't rember them laying this early but I probably didn't pay that close attention. Do you have a heated building? how do you keep the eggs from freezing?

No I don't have a heated building - and collect the eggs in the afternoon each day. The temperature has been above freezing during the day. I know that you can freeze eggs, so I don't suppose it matters if they did freeze if the shell doesn't crack- although you may have to use them quicker? I assume that the one you got today was okay? It's always a delight when I get the first egg of the year! (mine stop laying in winter/shorter daylight hours). Hopefully you may get more answers tomorrow....
