    ok I get the patience thing but to tease me with 2 eggs and then nothing for a solid week, and your getting treats daily, from bread, grapes, lettuce an so forth, give me a break.... They are so fat an plump they could become dinner easily.... Look at them [​IMG]

    Beautiful girls -- it can be so frustrating to wait - and wait - and WAIT - for eggs, finally get that first egg and then.........wait some more, lol. Have you thoroughly checked the entire coop/run? Even if the first eggs were in the nest boxes subsequent eggs can end up scattered hither and yon and, given their variable size, can easily end up rather "hidden" (sometimes only being found when you hear them crush under your feet as you walk through seemingly undisturbed bedding or litter. Are they confined at all times? If not, you will need to expand this search.

    Their coop I a big 10x10 box with boxes against the floor... The day I got eggs I was doing my monthly cleaning of the coop, the have a run of about 8x6, I thought I checked everywhere, the big girls don't have 2 many hiding places since I cleaned, but will definitely check again... Thanks
