that's all...just super anxious and a little puzzled and wanted to vent. Two (Red Star) of my 7 started laying at 19 and 20 weeks the other 5( australorp and deleware) are "on the dole" I bribe threaten and cajole but it does no good. It has been a sunny and warm fall for the most part, the are let out of their 8x9 pen to roam freely about the yard for several hours most days. They happily scratch around with their fluffy butts as if giving me the joy of watching them is sufficient and they owe me nothing. Harumph!
