    I have a 29 week old RIR mix-who has been red faced with developed comb and wattles for a month now, and a black aussie mix 28 weeks whos comb puffed up and turned red overnight it seems. Alice the aussie squats. Her pubic bone is seperated three fingers wide. Rosies is two and a half.

    What are more immediate signs of laying? I swear ive said, "any day now" since october. By all appearances, rosie should have laid by halloween.

    I dont even look for eggs anymore. I just glance around when i clean the coop.

    The day you give up and go to the store to buy some eggs they will be laying. Are they in molt? That would put it off for a little. Give it time, they will come!

    We never quit buying eggs! And nobody is molting. Fluffy butted wonderbirds. I think they know i love them and wouldnt consider the stewpot.
