    Hi Joan and welcome to BYC. Waiting for those first eggs is a painful experience, but fingers crossed they start soon :fl

    Best wishes

    It will probably be spring when you get your first egg as winter take alot out of them. Feed plenty of whole corn when it starts cooling off. It's 100times better then cracked corn because when the kernel is cracked it dries out quickly and looses most of it nutritional value. Good luck with your flock and if you need any help just let us know.
