    I know what you mean. I have one that started over two weeks ago and another that started about a week ago. But eventually they will all start laying and we will have an overload of eggs....I hope!

    Tell me about it! I have 16 and may get two eggs a day. One day I got ten then back to 1-2 a day. My gals are young, though, and with this heat we are experiencing, I don't blame him.

    I'm in the same boat. 1 started 2 weeks ago, a second one joined in a few days ago, then there's 5 more that are the same age we are still waiting on. Plus I have 2 SLW that are 6 weeks younger but are really getting red faces. Soon enough there will be more eggs than we can eat. They are getting a pep talk 3 times daily.

    I have 5 hens that are 9 months old which I bought alittle over 2 weeks ago. Started out with 1 egg, then 2, then 3 then 0. Now I'm getting 1 a day from the dominate hen whos working her butt off, literally, so I feel your pain. Here's hoping we can all start getting our eggs soon.

    Yes, have alot of people who are asking me for eggs. I tell them at this rate I can give them a dozen each every 12 days or so. Haha, slow going but still cool. Mine are all really red faced, but only the one laying will squat down when I go to pet them, guess I just have to be patient.
