    I have read that Blue Andalusians are medium egglayers (3 per week). Both of my Blues (who just started laying 6 days ago) have given me 5 eggs. Good girls.

    Should I expect this frequency or is it because they just started laying?

    I have 4 Andalusian pullets that just started laying, too. They've been laying for a month or so. One lays like crazy! Six to seven eggs per week. The other 3 lay well, too. Five to six eggs per week.

    Of course, I don't yet know how they'll lay when they get older...

    May I ask how old both of your andalusians are? Mine are 25 weeks and still haven't started laying.

    Quote:Mine are 24 weeks old. Two started laying at 20 weeks, and the other 2 at 21 weeks.

    Quote:I'm not exactly sure. We got them at the end of June and the guy said they were hatched in February.

    Oh, and each one laid again today.
