    Thanks! The girls and two guys came to me on March 25. I wasn't really expecting eggs this soon from Jersey Giants but they were getting their girly wattles and combs. They even put them in the same nest box so I wouldn't have to go looking for them. I checked on them at noon because of the heat and they were all enjoying the fan. No eggs at that time then at 8 pm I had 8 eggs!

    I think the fireworks scared the eggs right out of them.
