    Welcome to BYC!

    You are just going to have to wait. What are you feeding her? Make sure she has proper nutrition, enough space, other chickens, light and low stress. All those play a role in making eggs - and more.

    Glad you joined us!

    G’Day from down under ravenking [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
