Okay- so I've got 5 birds. One is 8 months- no eggs. One is on an egg laying hiatus for no apparent reason. One lays the tiniest little egg ever and makes the BIGGEST stink about it. One lays an nice sized egg that has a blood spot every. single. time. And she's developed a wheeze...i think something is stuck in her throat... AND NOW MY BEST LAYER IS BROODY!!!!!!! I sure do love them, but today is not one of my better chicken keeping days. Makes me want to start over.
