    Zerze and Mercades are sisters, same flock, same age. Both have full round red faces, wattles and combs. Zerze is laying an egg a day, and Mercades has done nothing. It's been over 20 days since Zerze laid her first perfect beauty and has been consistant since. I wonder, even tho they are the same age, should it take this long for Mercades to start?
