    Ok now I am beginning to feel like my little chickies are never gonna lay eggs. I have waited patiently and still no eggs. I think I might try that squeezing thing and see if it works for me. [​IMG]

    Cochins can be late bloomers. My Buff Brahma, also a breed known for late maturity, just laid her very first egg today at almost 30 weeks old, so hang on!

    LOL, not too hard, though! I picked up my sweet Caroline every day lately and said, "Honey, you know you gotta lay an egg sometime for Mama!". She held out till a cooler day, though.
