Quote:Hey all, Just checking in. Every time I type that I have to correct the check from chick. ha. Ralph, they will lay eggs. Just not very many and you aren't gonna get many before spring. My birds are over 8 months old and 2 of the 4 are finally starting to lay. Man, that's a dry spell. I think it's the Coronation Sussex. It's almost white and the white rock. So I get 3-4 eggs a day counting the 2 blue egg layers. That's enough for us for now. Going to the surgeon on the 16th and he probably will do the surgery around the 1st. Don't know. But I've been waffling a LOT about having it done and it's apparent to me that I gotta. Don't want to, but the ol' knee keeps giving out and I stumble. Not good. Just for fun I put 3 of the blue eggs and a white one in with the Sebright eggs I got. Probably not fertile but I don't think the SeBrights are either. Not meant to be. I'm not a very religious person but sometimes God knocks me upside the head to get my attention. Need the surgery. lol I got my 2nd coop all fixed up for the laying pullets that I'm not buying yet, so I think I'll put the XW trio and the 2 black rock pullets together in it for the time being. It's a good fit. The blacks are about 3-4 mo old and total bottom of the pecking order. I hope that they don't get too rowdy to them. I'll have places to hide. They were in with the XW cockerel until about a month ago so maybe he'll back off. Jessica, hoping your birds will start laying. Winter is such a bummer. Do you have plenty of light? It took my rescue chickens about 10 days to stop dead with no light. I kept them for a couple of months with no way to get light to them before selling. I know better now and have a plug available.
