    I get 10-11 eggs religiously from my girls by 11am everyday.

    3 hens have yet to lay, and I need just ONE egg to finish an order due today.

    Been there,it always seems the day you need them the most,they decide to the do brunch routine. "Yeah we'll get around to it when we feel like it,thanks for your concern". The days you dont you get 8 eggs before 7:30. I guess "a watch hen never lays" [​IMG]
