    Well with 18 hens & 20 weeks behind us, we've gotten one little pullet egg from our Black Star. Only five of the 18 have developed red combs and wattles. The Red Star is HUGE and still hasn't given us an egg. And so we wait... and make numerous trips to the out door opening of the nest boxes. Hoping... waiting...

    We should have a section for help dealing with compulsive nest box checkers lol
    My 5yo son & I were going out every hour when we were home. Of course he was more interested in trying to catch one of the girls, I saw the egg before he did and stayed back & asked if there were any eggs yet. He glanced in the boxes and said no then did a double take when he realized there was a tiny egg beside the golf ball!

    [​IMG] hope you get your first one soon!!!
