    Finally! My red Star, Ruth, laid her first egg on Friday and has laid a nice size brown egg early each day since. I have 12 more young girls who will hopefully follow suit. One of the EEs has been with the roos so maybe the green egg will come soon. YAY! -Lynn

    Quote:Lurky,
    My Buff Orps and Wyandotts seem to be developing very slowly. I had guessed that my RedStars would have begun much earlier even. Hang in there! I've been so anxious that I've given the girls pep talks, scolded the roos for not being more romantic and threatened chicken stew for everyone...lol! Lynn
