    I have 6 EE hens and a Rooster. Two of my hens have been laying since early September and they both lay one egg a day. The other 4 have not laid an egg yet. Why is it taking so long. They were all born the 4th week of April.

    I also have a question about my eggs. it has been very cold here and my girls don't lay untill mid morning. I don't get to pick them up untill the late afternoon sometimes frozen. Is this a problen? will they be ok to eat after they thaw?
