Well, the girls are moulting, and my egg supply has run out. I had to buy eggs from someone else - It makes me long for those early summer days when the eggs are rolling out of the refrigerator every time the door is opened!
I still only have one who is laying. At least my RIR started sqatting yesterday... maybe she will start laying in the next week or so. My BR who looks like she should have started 3wks ago is still just chowing down without producing anything. If she doesn't lay within the next 3-4wks I may start to think about the stew pot....
If this is the confessional thread, I have to join. Our four Buff Orps have been crossing their little legs and withholding the goods from us for many weeks now. Maybe one egg every two days, between the FOUR of them!
So we have had to.....(choke, cough)..... buy ..........storebought eggs. We had to wear wigs and sunglasses so nobody would know it was us, the people who brag incessantly about their golden girls's eggs. I'm thinking of getting therapy.
I didn't buy eggs for at least a couple months while waiting for my girls to lay eggs. The thing was... if we have no eggs, I don't make bread, cookies, french toast, pancakes, etc. That is hard enough that I had to break down and buy some free-range, organic eggs. At least that should be better than regular store-bought.
