    Went out and found two eggs instead of one! Haven't found the culprit yet! Still happy they laid it inside the nesting box this time!

    I have 2 hens laying and the other 5 (almost 21 weeks) are squatting and a few are checking out the boxes. I just want eggs!

    I have orpingtons and the deal was they could be returned if they turned out to be roosters.We're not allowed roosters here. My ''Betty White'' turned out to be "Bertram''.We got ''her'' at about !6 wks and she wasn't crowing then! In this case the breeder got it wrong! So don't feel bad that you didn't notice the signs.I didn't either. Thankfully he was replaced with another who is now laying.

    your girls are beautiful! I have 12 isa browns that will be 17 weeks on friday and I am very impatiently waiting for eggs. I was hoping they would be like some and lay at 14 weeks, but they don't want to give them up yet. Lol

    Thanks! We also have 12. In the last two weeks I've really seen a lot of development in their combs and waddles. Several of them started squatting this week. I'm hoping to see some eggs by 16 or 17 weeks.
