    Holly didn't lay an egg for breakfast this morning!!! [​IMG] I really wish the other 5 layabouts would start laying. hahaha

    My lazy butt drove to Jack in the Box for an egg sandwich instead. [​IMG]

    I gave her half a watermelon, you'd think she would at least repay the favor [​IMG] [​IMG]

    LOL I guess I'm jumping the gun here, all the chickens are only 16 - 20 weeks [​IMG] I guess I'll give them a few more weeks of laying around eating watermelon then [​IMG]

    Yeah you are jumping the gun - 26 weeks is average BUT they can hold off for much longer than that. Some of mine layed at 21 weeks.

    Maybe you need to bring home some chicken fried chicken from "Cracker Barrel" for breakfast and tell her this is what is going to happen if there isn't an egg a day! [​IMG]
