    Beautiful freeloaders you got there. My freeloaders are only 22 weeks today. I have a feeling we won't be seeing anything from them until the spring.

    Happy Birthday!

    I am getting about a dozen eggs a week now, Joe. Mine recently started laying and they don't lay every day. For the record the blues aren't the best layers in the bunch either.

    Joe, you always make me laugh.

    Happy Birthday to your princesses.

    Mine are 27 weeks and only 1 of 4 are laying. But it sure is fun to check the coop, even for that elusive, every-other-day gift.

    I'm feeling your pain. Hope they start laying soon for you.

    Hang in there, Joe. Mine are 26 weeks, and just started laying this week. I'm getting about 4-5 eggs a day from 10 hens.

    It'll happen.

    Maybe the fact that you sit there staring at them is making them nervous...

    [​IMG] Happy Birthday to the freeloaders. Have you tried the old stew pot trick? I gurantee it will work eventually. [​IMG]

    HAH!! I got you all beat! I have seven 35 weekers that aren't laying yet. Of my three that are laying, one just started this past weekend. So I still have hope.... [​IMG]
