Lazy Chcikens

Seems I am having trouble keeping my blog list up.  I put some back on and then they disappeared. 
Guess I will try again.  Has anyone else had this trouble?

The hens are not laying yet.  They were hatched the early part of April.  It has been over six months.
My husband is feeding them what you are suppose to feed them.  The rooster is crowing good.  They all just want food all the time.  Which is natural, I guess.  Does anyone know anything about  when hens are suppose to lay?   Different people tell us different times.  Some are saying they won't lay until Spring. We are ready for yard eggs.

I have not felt too well.  Would you pray that I could get my blood pressure under control?  It started vacillating  for some reason.  The doctor put me on a weekly patch.  Hopefully it will level out.

I hope all of you are having a good week.  Let me hear from you.

I will pray your blood pressure is under control soon. Sorry you are not feeling well.

Our chickens have been laying for a few months now. Although they weren't very productive until my husband started feeding them laying pellets. Our Marans are the ones that hatched earlier this year we have 3 of them and some days we get only 2 eggs from them so even with the laying pellets they are not laying everyday. One of them didn't start laying until she was given the laying pellets. We have 4 leghorns that are a year old. Some days not all of them lay. We had a friend tell us his chickens will not lay without giving them the pellets. Another friend who has Marans that were hatched the same time as ours has yet to see an egg too.

I don't know if this helps you or not. This is just what ours our doing.

I hope you feel better soon.

I'm sorry I don't know much about chickens, but I do know a bit about our Healing God. I'm praying the Lord would heal your blood pressure problems once and for all Aliene.
Bless you my friend!
