    I have two lovely ladies who I am spoiling rotten...lots of treats, a light for 14 hours, 3 roosting bars to chose from and a decked out nesting box and still no eggs. They are about 18-20 weeks old and I just want to know how much longer? So if any of you have a direct line to the egg fairy, if you could let her know that "ANYTIME WOULD BE GREAT!"...I would appreciate it.

    Heehee, patience is key.

    Your Gold Comet will probably start laying no later than 22 weeks. I'm surprised that she's held off this long, actually. It might be the shorter winter days that are holding her up.

    Your Cochin...... is another story. They're slow developers, and she may even hold off on laying until spring.
