    And I actually saw my RIR laying this morning -- I was pretty sure she'd started but hadn't caught her at it yet. So, now we're getting anywhere from 3 to 6 eggs a day and mostly 4 or 5 and they'll all be 23 weeks old on Friday. Woohoo!

    In case anyone is looking at breed time to laying:
    1. EE/Ameracauna -- 19 weeks, lays daily 25 hours apart, with one day off every 10-14 days, she is like clockwork
    2. GLW -- 20 weeks, lays daily in the morning and doesn't seem to take a day off
    3. BOs -- one started at 21 weeks, the other at 22, variable laying schedule, about 3-4 eggs per week
    4. PR -- started at 21 weeks, variable laying schedule, 4-5 eggs per week
    5. RIR -- started at 22 weeks, has only laid one or two eggs so far
