    Oh, can I relate!

    I have Mille Fleur D'Uccles that will be 27 weeks tomorrow, and not one egg!!! They show all the signs of impending eggs: huge red combs (almost like roos, but no, I am sure they're pullets), squatting, and being eagerly "loved" [​IMG] by their roo. But no eggs!!!!! Nada!!!! Nothing!!!! They just sit there and look cute. (They are pretty cute.) [​IMG]

    Then I have 3 EE pullets and 3 Delaware pullets that are around 18 weeks. Yeah, I know they are still a little young, but I only have two little silkies laying, but they go broody about every 5 minutes; not enough to keep us supplied in eggs, and their eggs are so tiny to boot!!!
    It would be real nice to have some standard size eggs!

    Arrrggghhh!!! [​IMG]
