    so its been a few weeks over 6 months now,,, and my americauna and barahm have yet to give me an egg...
    i have a 5 month old RIR and a RIR mix and nothing,.,,, they have been checking out the nest area,, have their waddles red faces big round white poo,,, eating 50/50 layer starter as well as free rangin a few hours a day,,, i have checked all their little spots around the yard and nothing.. i even run out there when i hear a loud squack thinking one just pushed an egg out,.,,
    its been about 70-85 during the day and cooler at night,...

    there is 2 little chicks (2 months) in the same coop. could they be affecting the older birds somehow?

    i know patience is key,,, but this is killing me!!!!! cant wait to try an egg,,, egg sandwich, egg salald, egg soup, egg this egg that,,, give some away,,,,,

    do i have to dance or sing to them?? do an egg laying dance for them?

    Quiche and egg souffle and omelettes and fried eggs too. That's what we've done with our first eggs so far. Only 4 of 13 laying at 28+ weeks now and most eggs are peewee or small or medium in size so far. Got one jumbo and one large.

    Hurry up and wait - or go buy some eggs and practice recipes while you wait.
