    My three Golden Comets will be 19 weeks Tuesday and not one single egg yet.[​IMG] Only one has a really red comb. I hoping any day for her. One hardly has any red to her comb. Does the comb have to be fully developed before they will lay? It's like watching water boil--I really want some eggs!

    I put there nest box in a few weeks ago with a fake egg. Every morning when I go to check--they have pushed the fake egg out and it's empty. I think they are trying to tell me something:lol:

    They'll lay when they're good and ready - and not before!! However, I promise you that their eggs will taste better than any you've bought in a shop and will be well worth the wait [​IMG]

    I am playing the waiting game too...got 3 Red Star pullets @ 20 weeks old... no eggies yet! One's comb/waddle is much redder and more developed than the other, but no egg squats going on....The wait is almost unbearable! [​IMG]
