I can't wait to find my 1st green egg! My pullets are looking more like hens every time I go out to the pen.

I understand your late bloomers! I have had my 27 chickens since January and they wouldn't lay. I dusted, wormed, fresh watered, fed... and last week someone in here suggested calf manna..... and 7 days later.."Tonight" I went into the chicken house.... and low and behold,,,, 9 1/2 months later.... My first 2 eggs (1.6 oz) each! I left the chicken house and came back in to see maybe if I was seeing things! Time to celebrate!

You should be able to get calf manna at any feed store/mill. It is a milk base and boost protein too. My rabbits (and my dog) love it. Just remember a little goes a long way when supplementing feed like that.
