    I sure hope my girl does. She got a late start (June 23) then was doing good laying nearly every day. We had 11 days of high 90's (before heat index ) and she totally quit. I hope she starts laying again and the younger girls start in too.

    How old are you girls? Have they been laying regularly?

    My girls are still laying and babies are still hatching. I have 4 girls on eggs right now. Looking forward to about 40 more babies soon. I'm finding eggs all over the place. Sometimes it's a pain. [​IMG]

    They should still lay since the weather is nice and the days are long. They usually won't stop until it gets cooler and the days get shorter.

    Quote:Well she'll go into the duck house and sit for a while. Then either she will get through and leave, then you go get the egg or she'll continue to sit and you have a broody. I would think as long as she is getting a healthy diet and has acsess to nesting places she will continue to lay till cool weather comes.
