    Eight weeks today! Come on December 12th!! I am not a patient person...I've already built and stuffed the nest boxes and fluff them every single morning.

    Mine were 20 weeks on Monday 9/17. Still no eggs. I would have thought that my 2 Red Stars would be laying. I also have 2 BLRW, 5 EEs, 1 Partridge Rock, 4 BOs ....sigh. Can't wait for a green egg.
