    I feel your pain. It can be maddening. Unfortunately you can't control it.

    Best I can offer is to wish you eggs soon!!

    is it possible that a predator attack could slow her maturing? when she was about 16 weeks she was almost killed by a raccoon. she wqas in its mouth when my stepdad went out there and the raccoon dropped her and ran. she got a neck ingery but lived and also was not paralyzed or anything. she bled a little and got a decent sized hole in the back of her neck. could this affect how fast she matures?

    Hopefully it will be soon. What part of Houston?
    Maybe tomorrow. I could be just the time of the year that she came into laying age. I've been reading about that. There are threads on here about that subject.
