And just when I all but given up. My Australorp laid her first egg... 28 weeks later.
Yippee! I wonder if winter slowed her down in getting started with the program.
Congratulations!!!! We just got our first two eggs today and that was due to finally getting some artificial light in there. Unfortunately they were both trampled either because they laid them right under where they roost (they might have rolled there, I think these guys have learned to play soccer with the plastic egg I put in the nest to give them a hint) or....could they actually have just set on the roost and let them drop from there???? Anyway, obviously we weren't checking every day so i am glad they didn't start eating them and we will be vigilant now. But what a great feeling after months of feeding them and caring for them they were quite entertaining to watch but this was the payback we've been looking forward to.
congrats!!! Nice egg!!
A fine specimen!
