Well thanks to you all, I found out yesterday that one of my seven week old girls is infact a Dark Cornish, who was sold to me as a Speckled Sussex Now, Im new to chicken keeping so am learning all I can, but Ive been reading so much about the breed, and have come up with some who say there good layers and some that say maybe youll get one a week, that there mainly meat birds. I only have four girls, so egg production is important to me, and would be very disapointed if it is only one egg a week. Unfortunatly my coop and run, 4 x 4 and 8 x 8 couldnt accomodate a fifth chicken, but I dont think I could get rid of her, she is the sweetest. How often do your Dark Cornish's lay on average? Thanks so much!!
