    They both will be 24 weeks on Thursday. One has squatted for me literally for weeks, the other is the head hen and has only been submissive a few times. I think she is suffering from PMS and wish she would get to egg laying. They both are beautiful with big red combs and wattles. What gives? Are RIR late bloomers. They do not free range and are not egg eaters. I have one BSL that lays an egg daily. Come on girls!

    I am going out of town this weekend and have a friend keeping my ladies, so you watch, they will start laying for her. [​IMG]

    I am in the same boat as you. I have a new hampshire red that is big, red comb and waddles for weeks and I've got nothing to show for it either. she makes growling noises at me but that's about it. we are going out of town for the holiday next weekend and I'm pretty sure she will lay for my sitter.
