    ME TOO! I found two perfect little brown eggs in the nest boxes this morning!
    I knew they were getting close to laying because the sex-links were squatting and acting all weird but they are only 16 weeks old!!!
    Now I think 1 of the barred rocks is in there trying her luck too. lol
    I got pics too...hope they come thru ok. [​IMG]

    Quote:We had an egg sandwich and then when I went to the store I came back and my DH had found ANOTHER one! It must be the power of suggestion. [​IMG]

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    Congratulations! They are no longer Freeloaders! They are earning their keep!
    Unless you consider their entertainment value, of course.

    lol you have it right freeloaders is what htey have been.

    I think that power of suggestion works because 2 days ago my hubby went out there and told them that if they did not start layin he was gona eat all of them for supper now look i have eggs lol.
