    26 weeks old tomorrow and STILL no eggs from my brown egg layers. [​IMG]

    I had TWO identical size/color (bluish)/shape eggs in the same nesting box one evening. I'm guessing it's the same girl had one stored up from the weekend. Lol. The other layer has a more olive green egg and it's usually on the ground by the door. There is another lighter green one in a second nesting box. So ... by egg differences alone, I'm assuming all three ee's are laying.

    I have yet to see any chickens in the boxes, so they must sneak up there, plop one in and get back on the roost.

    sigh ....

    I did tell them it's scrambled eggs or fried chicken for dinner ... their choice.

    Sure fire way to get eggs: Go buy a dozen from the grocery store. That's what happened to me when my first girls started laying.
