I haven't seen an egg since the spring and I'm about to make a BIG pot of stew. I started out with 3 hens (2 delawares and a white rock) The 2 delawares gave me lots of eggs for quite a while until they went into a molt for about 5 months. The white rock has given me many headaches, but about half a dozen eggs in her life. She gets broody all the time. Last spring I decided to put some fertile eggs under her and let her raise them so I could have a few more eggs. Long story short I ended up raising them myself and all but one turned out to be roosters, (which I no longer have). One of the original Delawares, in the mean time, got sick and died. Now I'm down to one laying hen and she's molting again. Has been for for months. The pullet is 23 weeks old and has not laid yet. I kept one of the roosters and he just started calling this week so he's reaching maturity. And the young ones insist on sleeping in the nest box. I have to move them to the perch every single night. All I do is feed and clean up poo. I'd sure love an egg. Someone please tell me I'll have an egg soon.
