    All my Cinnamon Queens are from the same hatch. One has been laying for almost 4 weeks, but no one else has started yet!! Suggestions?

    All the lay pellets they want! Have they been wormed? Sometimes they slow down their metabolism if they are sick or wormy. Are they molting? This will also cause the egg production to slack.

    the CM and the EE are the only ones molting and they're not even old enough to lay yet. it's just those darn PERFECTLY HEALTHY, VERY WELL FED 7 MONTH OLDS!!
