    I think my speckled sussex just started laying! We used to get 3 eggs/day (have 4 hens), then yesterday, we got a very small one, and today, we got 4 eggs for the first time. Is this possible. She's about 9 months old.
    Does anyone else have a speckled sussex that started laying later than usual?

    I don't have a Speckled Sussex, but congratulations!

    I have five Buff Orpingtons that are almot 10 months old. Yesterday, for the first time we had three eggs! Woo-hoo! [​IMG]
