    Hi guys, i have 14 pullets from cackle hatchery turned 18 weeks old this week and got my first egg yesterday. Got another egg today a little larger than the first was wondering if it was possible the same hen or do i have 2 layers? Will i get a dozen eggs a day from 14 RIR's? We currently have about 12 hrs daylight and 95 degree weather.Thanks.

    My RIR/Orp pullets started laying at 19 weeks. One started a few days eariler than the other. When they started laying they have continued everyday since. The only way to know for sure is to catch them in the act [​IMG] CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
