    As I posted on Tuesday, I got my first egg... just one out of 3 SLW's and one Amer. They are about 23 weeks old. Well, today is Friday and I haven't seen a second one yet. What's up with that? Do they take a while to start doing it every day?


    Thanks!

    This happened to me about 3 weeks ago....and I am still waiting (just 1 egg out of 1 birdie). The responses I received from BYC were all pretty much the same thing - good things come to those who wait. [​IMG]

    You are kidding me! You got one egg 3 weeks ago and not another since? How old are yours?

    haha, no wonder. I thought my post didn't get entered... which sometimes I click and it doesn't. So I answer again :p

    Thanks silkie, I don't have that option in the first post though. It looks like after you edit it once you no longer have that option. Because the option is there for a later post.
