    They are probably just not ready yet - I know the waiting is a killer!! [​IMG] My Production Red just started at 24 weeks....one of our New Hampshires started at 25 weeks (last weekend)...the other New Hampshire and our Barred Rock have not laid any yet - they are all the same age (26 weeks now). They will start soon - hang in there! [​IMG]
