    I found another egg in the nest box today at around 2:15 p.m. [​IMG] Since yesterday there was none. Again I'm assume it's my black orpington girl Oprah.

    I'm a little worried about my SLW, Lacy. She hasn't shown any signs of laying other than her wattles are big and red. She doesn't come near me. She is very scittish, and very mean to the other girls. If I move suddenly she gets scared and runs away. I have seen her go in and out of the coop on some occasions.

    Here's another pix of the 5th egg I've found so far.[​IMG]

    Here is Lacy

  2. Beautiful pix.

    Our Leghorns are still skittish and have red combs, and we finally got an egg from them. Be patient! W/ such gorgeous birds I might be happy just lookin' at 'em.[​IMG]

    My chickens just started laying too.
    One of my Dominiques has had a rocky start with some strange results but one of my Australorps is doing great and is very consistant; the other two that are the same age, arn't doing anything at all. [​IMG]
    Must just be the way it works, i'm sure they will all lay eventually.

    Oh and my GLW, is a bit flighty too, must be the breed.
