    Finally, my long awaited moment has come! My 6 red sex-link hens are all laying! We have had 2 for 2 months and 4 for 1 and a half months. The ones that came earlier layed long ago but the other 4 are now laying. I am so proud [​IMG] And the most shy hen is finally able to eat from my hand! What a great week! Except I have a very depressing fever right now [​IMG]
    I am going to find a time where i will take pictures of them and post onto this thread. [​IMG]

    congratulations. I understand your excitement. Three out of my five are laying, and I'm waiting very anxiously for the other two (they're about a month younger) to start. Three eggs a day is good, but five would be better.

    Good for you, ChickenGirl165! I am so jealous of you right now! I have 7 hens, but only one is old enough to lay, and she just started. So we are still just getting maybe 1 small egg a day right now. But I know it is just a matter of time....
