    I have got now a total of 3 eggs from my Pekings. Still not a year old. When the weather gets better will they lay more often?

    Egg laying depends on the breed. Pekins are seasonal layers and she will lay eggs mostly in spring and summer. Other breeds like khaki campbells, runners and welsh harlequins can lay all year round.

    My Pekins were born last May - They started laying in October and now I get three eggs everyday from my three hens, however, I am not sure how long they will keep this up. I hatched out 6 at the end of November, 5 turned out to be females. So those should be laying by May [​IMG]

    Yes, at one time I was getting more eggs from my khaki campbells than I was getting from my chickens
