That's funny Scott. I'm about to take a frying pan outside to show to my lavender orpingtons, and tell them if they don't start producing some eggs, they are going to be dinner, one by one. I've spent a small fortune on them, from the original eggs, to feed, to the new coop/run. Almost 25 weeks, and still no eggs. And the roosters better start paying attention to their own kind and leave the silkies alone!
