    What gives? Are there particular laying dates for certain breeds?

    Americanas
    Golden Laced Wyandottes
    Golden Campine
    Partridge Cochins
    Light Brahmas
    Delaware
    Black australorp
    Sexlinks or Productions

    And a buff brahma rooster in a pear tree ......

    They're on a layer crumble with free choice grit.

    No Eggs!!!

    Hmmm ... I wonder if they will all start laying at once then? Maybe the "you first" syndrome. Lol.

    [​IMG] That's why I think every time I go to the store and buy eggs! My 8 SLW are over 4 months old and realize it's too bloody hot to want to lay an egg right now so am patient to wait until cooler weather. Hopefully I won't have to wait 23 weeks! That's 6 months old!
