    Well not a single one of my girls is laying. They are all looking like they should (Combs and wattles changing colors, getting bigger booties) yet no eggs.[​IMG]

    $3.59 for a dozen eggs, they better start laying soon![​IMG]

    Anyone else want to join the no breakfast club?[​IMG]

    Naw, but thanks for the invite. Mine have started laying again. I am wondering why store eggs are so high where you live, I can buy large white here for less than $1.50. I'm sure your girls will start laying soon.

    Ohh just rub it in why don't you?[​IMG]

    I have not clue why they are so expensive. I'm sure I could shop around a get a little better deals, but the cheapest I have ever found them was 1.99 and I went to the store this morning and they have jumped up to 3.59?!?!?

    I hope that the $1.50 per dozen eggs are from cage free hens [​IMG]

    I'm in the club. Dish me up some lumpy oatmeal and pour me some cold coffee. I'm in with both feet. I have 4 hens, 2 CAME as layers. But it is cold, it is dark. One girl tries her best and gives me 3 eggs a week, well she did once, but they are bantams after all. The other older one lays once a week kind of at random. The younger girls are like 8 months and not a sign of a thing. Likely if daylength is the issue that everyone says it is I will start seeing an improvement. How many bantams does it take to make a pot pie?
