    Yep... I'd have thought the Redstars(sexlinks) would have both been laying by now. I had three. One flew the coop and landed in the dog's mouth. I wasn't really sure about any of the other breeds as far as how quickly they matured. I can say that I've had EEs and Redstars in the past and they were dependable layers. So far my older dominique has been the most dependable. I wish these younguns would get going!

    A friend got an egg layer assorment from Mcmurray back in May. She gave my 5 year old a couple of red stars.
    I'm figuring from the middle of May they are probably about 22/23 weeks.
    Anyway, we got our first egg today!

    I am looking for the other one to start laying at anytime.
    After months of getting bantam eggs, I am ready for some large eggs
