Decided to buy BR pullets for the first time, heard they were great layers. They have been laying since they were about 22 weeks old but eggs very small and inconsistent. They are good foragers and friendly but so far not good layers. The gold sex links that were hatched at the same time are excellent. They lay almost every day, large to almost extra large milk chocolate colored eggs, and started laying at 21 weeks. Anybody else have this problem w/barred rocks. If we stay here I am going to get a bunch of different pullets chicks so we can get our rainbow free range eggs going again. Some of my hens are older and have slowed down a bit but I do not eat my chickens!!
