    Got an egg today!! [​IMG] My girls have been on a egg laying strike for almost two months. I have my fingers crossed that many more are to follow.

    Hope your luck rubs off in this direction as I haven't seen a home grown egg in months!

    They probably need a pep talk. Make sure you say thank- you after they lay.

    I found feeding a cup of Calf Manna to them each day (for 6 hens) last year when they quit laying helped to get them going again. It could just be the season too. Mine are hardly laying right now.

    I always thank them, but nothing except 4 from my games since August! Then again I think Games don't care about anything much, so they don't strike like the others.

    Maybe I should go show them what an egg looks like again and they'll kick in.
