    These store-bought eggs look like mutants compared to my girls' little blue-green ones.
    My girls are molting so I haven't had any eggs in nearly 3 weeks - [​IMG]
    Sure hope they resume laying when they get their feathers back.

    Blech. Store bought eggs.

    I hope your girls get over their molt quick. I have 2 of 6 molting right now.

    We are getting 3 to 4 and 5 at the most a day from my 16 hens since about two weeks ago. I think they might be losing a few feathers too. I guess I'll find out about molting soon.

    Just got over a "bad case of the molts".

    Started right before Thanksgiving, so we had to buy eggs for all the baking for a family reunion. I had to tell people that all of our stuff was not baked with our own eggs. [​IMG]

    We are just now getting eggs again but only enough for the family. No extras for Christmas gifts for the neighbors this year.

    I can't eat battery hen eggs anymore. Hope we all get some egg action soon!
