    Gwen, our resident BSL, laid an egg daily for 21 days in a row. She took Friday off and started up her next stretch yesterday.

    Great birds, those BSL!

    I can beat that, I have 3 Isa Browns that have only missed one egg since Jan1. All are jumbos. If you want some like them you can order from Townline hatchery. www.townlinehatchery.com

    Wow Jenn...how old was your BSL when she started laying? I've got only 1 BSL, and she's 22 weeks and still hasn't started yet. Her comb and wattles are super bright red and she's "singing the song"...so hopefully any day now!

    Shelley - Gwen will be a year old in the end of May (around May 30). She started laying on Thanksgiving Day, which put her at about 6 months old. My other 2 pullets, a RIR and a BR (RIP Dumpling) started on Dec. 27 & 28th. They were ~7 months old. Her eggs are medium-sized, around 56 grams. The RIR's eggs are much larger: 62g & bigger.
