    I got 2 Sultin chicks at a sale this past spring and both were pullets. One or maybe both have started laying eggs, so far about a dozen and all are fart eggs, not even a speck of yolk. They get eather Southern States or Blue Seal Layer and a little cracked corn. They also have a roo with them and are in an about covered pen 12x12. I get fart eggs from new layers once in a while, but never this many. Any ideas why there are no yolks?

    Fart eggs are an indication that they are working on getting their egg layin machines tuned up and in order. How old are they? I am sure they will start laying normal eggs soon...

    These girls are between 6 and 8 month old. They have laid about 12 fart eggs so far. I don't know if just 1 or both of them are laying, but there is 1 laid about every 2 or 3 days. Thanks, I do hope normal eggs happen soon.
