    I'm patiently waiting for my girls to start laying eggs..... They are 17 weeks and it feels like a lifetime since I got them at 1 day old. Anyone else feel like they seem like they will never get any eggs??? I'm very anxious and wish I could be one of the posters with my first egg picture!!!

    Me too! I've been waiting for my 4 --- 19 week old red sex links to lay. I am thinking that it's just too hot? We've been having 100+ degree weather.

    mine are 17 weeks no eggs. As well no crowing I'm always second guessing myself as to what I have. I even bring YouTube sounds of roosters crowing and they don't react.

    Sometimes certain breeds take a while like my delawares I think they won't be laying until this December or later.

    I feel like they look ready to lay. All signs and sounds say so but no luck.

    Be careful what you wish for. [​IMG] Ours started laying a few weeks back and now we're getting 5 a day. They add up fast.
