    Ok, this may seem odd, but will a cockeral mate with a pullet that is not ready to lay eggs? Should we be getting ready for an influx in eggs? These are all chicks that were born in June, and have not yet laid, and the boys and girls are all the same age, and sent to us at the same time.... Is this a cue?

    Our boys "did the deed" before we were getting any eggs also. Practice makes perfect...[​IMG]
