    Layer, 2 weeks.
    Between 19 and 21 weeks. The RIR that layed is 21w.
    Shell was thicker than store eggs.

    So, yesterday afternoon and this morning I gave the gals a small can of tuna.
    No egg as of noon. Sun came out so I hooked up to the mowers/trailer to the truck, and went to work.

    Just got home, and decided to check on the gals....

    Holy s$!t..... :eek: in the corner of the coop is a egg... a whole, complete egg...:wee. IMG_20190723_173511794.jpg

    Do you have no other nests?
    Put fake eggs in those.
