All of my layers are brown eggs. They are red sex-links, and the egg eating group are Lohman Browns. The Lohmans are the older group and will most likely be exiting the barn door once the pullets are laying. I agree that he took way too long in between but he did have a huge group of Rhode Island reds that he got from a hatchery that never started to lay. As weird as that sounds, he waited and waited with an egg never appearing. Needless to say, he finally had to let's say....dig a giant hole and open the barn door. Then the wait on a new pullet batch began again. I think that coupled with a few other things in his life, the excitement wore off and he was ready for a change. If I had to butcher 200 chickens, I would so need a vodka bath! Hmmm....Ralph, you piqued my interested with the suggestion of a 50 lb barrel of vodka. I better leave here and go look on Amazon and Ebay!! We will take pics when we have our first mobile until up and bring the first group of girls. I may even do a video but be prepared for the waterworks. Some of these sweet girls haven't been outdoors yet. I have seen videos of production hens being let out on pasture for the first time and watching their confusion and then instincts kick in is the most amazingly touching thing. I'm tearing up now thinking of it. Ok, off to Ebay for the barrel of vodka!
