    My blue egger has been intermittent since day 1. But she has turned it off for the last month and I am assuming because of the winter months setting in. She lost her tail feathers and is maybe molting??? Looks funny without them. Oh well, all my other breeds are still giving me eggs. Go figure.

    Are they just too young? Some breeds take longer to start laying.

    My Ameracuana stopped laying sometime in Dec. Today i got my first egg from her .. Yeah! The days are getting a bit longer and their rest period is coming to an end. I can't begrudge her a rest period. She is so sweet and lays the prettiest blue egg. I noticed my other hens have picked up a bit too. Gloria Jean
