First question, I have one bantam cochin girl that is not laying eggs, she is more than old enough, but for some reason has not started laying eggs. I have light in the coop a few hours extra each day, and the other girls are doing their part, so is there something I can do to encourage her to join in the fun? Second question, do I need to wash eggs if I plan to sell any. I am planning on a flock of EE's and Buff Orpingtons for personal eggs but expect a surplus. I have seen commercial egg wash in the catalogs, but the literature I have read said not to wash eggs. What is the right thing to do (what do you all do with your eggs?)?
