I acquired four Golden Comets (all hens) almost two years ago, and they have done great. They lay jumbo sized eggs, and do it almost every day... even though the winter.
They don't make a lot of noise, and are always glad to see me, as I often bring a daily treat. I can't allow them to roam, so they stay in the coop shown below. It's a total of 4'x12' with a 4'x4' house. They usually sleep in the tallest roost outside, even in the winter! The floor of the coop has linoleum, both sides of the coop open up for easy 'sweep out' cleaning, and they seem to be happy. Oh, the other day, I had a record egg layed. It was 3.8 ounces and measured 6-1/2" in circumference! Poor Bird! LOL
I was getting a double yolk egg about once a week or so while they were young. That stopped after less than a year, though.
Oh, as for cutoffs...
medium egg 1.75 oz
large egg 2.00 oz
extra lg 2.25 oz
jumbo 2.5 oz
friggin ouch! 3.8 oz :)
