    I have 5 Golden Comets (Golden Sex Link) hens and I have got 5 eggs everyday for over 75 days in a row!! Is anyone else getting eggs like that? Don't think they can keep that up forever!![​IMG]

    They are doing what they were bred to do. You don't mention their age, but I am guessing that they are first year hens. They will eventually take a break, molt and start the production all over again - perhaps with somewhat larger eggs. Maximum production will be in their first 2 and a half years of life, but if there are no problems with their oviduct they may continue laying at reduced rates for far longer.
