    Mine were really late...so I went to drastic measures [​IMG] I drove two hours for 3 Red Stars that had been laying for two weeks...brought them home and each one layed an egg the first day. On the second day...everyone started following suit! [​IMG]
    We cooked the first 3 for the children since they weren't "technically" the first anyhow....(our first though) and heres our first dozen!
