About a week ago I gathered the girls for a meeting (all but 1 showed up). It had been almost 23 weeks and I had waited patiently as long as I could. These girls needed a little coaching! I showed them a nest box, showed them what it looked like to have eggs (fake) in the nest box, and told them this is what I expected of them....soon! It paid off! A week later I got my firs egg - and look at that beautiful yolk! So. Much. Fun. Love these girls if they never lay, but sure am glad they're starting to!
