Backstory: We have three girls Lena (minorca), Ginger (Barred Rock), and Esther (Speckled Sussex). They are now about 9 months old. They started laying in early August. We were so excited! Well in October they stopped. Just stopped. There was a little molt. TOday: well Ginger and Esther's combs have been getting redder and redder. Two days ago Esther started squatting for me again. Today we recieved a light brown gift. Wooo! Kinda oblong in shape. I'm sure it's cause she's out of practice. She was so excited she did an egg song. Hubby thought something was wrong. "Esther's makin a racket". None of the girls do egg songs all that often. Maybe Ginger will get the hint. I don't expect anything from Lena until spring.
