    Well, I have a 10 oz hen that Is laying, I think I read that they can sometimes not be fertile, even though a smaller hen is laying, I am feeding them Layer feed, and they have Small Gravel that they eat as grit, I am going to scramble some eggs for them later, someone gave me some eggs that I don't want to incubate so I will feed some of that!

    yeah, It keeps getting bigger, I am going to give her some time, Thanks for the help!

    I believe, as with my hens, that there is a great chance that Annabeth is not sterile. I also provide all the oyster shell they want.

    Hi prizepete,

    I saw that you mentioned that you got your eggs from a breeder on ebay. Which breeder did you buy your eggs from?

    I'm a little afraid of getting eggs from ebay since I've heard so much about dishonest sellers on there, but have not had any luck finding breeders near me (northern California) who sell or ship eggs that carry the frizzle or silkie gene.
