    one of my cornish X pullets, 20 weeks old. Been getting random eggs for two weeks, one here and there. Heard the egg song but couldn't catch anyone in the process. Frustrating that is. [​IMG]

    So today I managed to catch one in the act. A cornish X pullet. Makes sense now that the eggs haven't been in the nestboxes; the CXs being entirely clueless and all that. [​IMG]

    ETA this footnote - "clueless" being a nice way of saying dumber than a box of rocks.

    Well, there haven't been any Grown Up Cornish X ladies where she came from to give any of 'em the Word about laying! No Momma CXs (much less Gramma CXs) to say, "When I was a pullet...."

    That is SO cool, Kat! Your rescue meaties are producing eggs!!!

    Yeah it is cool. I don't think I'll ever see fertile eggs from them either. Ollie is equally clueless about what his role is in the whole mating process. [​IMG]

    That clueless thing, 'Bless their hearts' is why I always called all of my meaties "Baby Huey"
