    I've been pretty sick for a few days, but I did go out and find FOUR eggs today! [​IMG]
    So, with that, I'm going to tell DH to make me some scrambled eggs with cheese... then I'm going back to bed!

    I feel for you, i'm sick too. I got an egg today but not a huge deal since there are 10 layers and this the first one I've gotten in a week .[​IMG]

    i waited a good 3 months, now I'm getting 3 a day. Pretty good, since I only have 3 chickens.

    I guess we're pretty fortunate - our oldest two started laying on December 18th and we've had 2 eggs every other day since that date.

    Then again, our winter is pretty mild [​IMG]

    I think mine are just spoiled! It's not like we have bad winters here in Southern California. But, I did get another present yesterday! [​IMG]

    Lucky you, Carri! We're not getting much over here in OC either. My girls have been molting/on strike for quite a while. One has started laying sporadically, but her last two were soft shelled eggs that she dropped off the roost. Thus, Trader Joe's has been my egg source, but even the free-range, organic eggs are no match to what my girls (used to) lay. Sigh.

    Hope you feel better!
