    Why is it that the week before I have a big order for eggs is the week they decide to take a break? Normally I would not mind but it seems that they are getting into a pattern with this. I have a woman who buys off me once a month and usually takes all that I have,anyway the girls always seem to pull a work slow down the week before? WHY?

    I guess that sums it up. I guess I have to explain that the more they lay the more treats they get but not sure if that will stick. I am a union guy but geez they are killing me.
